I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    It’s very very pretty. I like the use of 3d printing too.

    from a practical point of view though, all that internal routing, especially via the steerer makes me feel a bit ill.

    That is very pretty, liking the anodising and the 3D printing but… £3425 for a steel hardtail frame!!

    Sorry. but £20 a ticket plus the cost of getting there to see bikes I can’t afford seems a bit much. I’ll just wait for your excellent coverage for free…(Well subs price obvs).

    A lovely looking frame. I really like the bronze & grey on the frame & fork, but not digging the contrast with the gold anodising at all.

    I was thinking that, the comment about it taking a long time to get the anodising ‘just right’ and that’s the colour they were looking for?

    They should flip the stem, then it would really look like it’s vomiting cables.

    Also, how flipping far out are they runnning those brake levers?

    If I were to go that far with integrating/hiding the cables, first off I’d use AXS… but then for hoses, I’d make them black, and use levers that had the hose exiting the lever nearer to the bar (a la Trickstuff Piccola, the one without the mega wait), then drill the bar and run them through that, into the stem and steerer so you wouldn’t have that big loop still. And run the front brake fully down the back of the fork leg.

    The way they’ve done it makes it look more cluttered than standard, not helped by the coloured cables, IMO.

    I’ll be there, what’s the worst that could happen?

    I too like the colour.

    I too don’t like the odd cable arrangement – and agree with Tom about running wireless…

    Cables look weird, price is crazy but it is very pretty
