For sale is this amazing road bike that can take on the rough stuff too. I have found this to be the perfect road bike for bumpy British roads. It’s very comfortable but remains sharp and responsive too. I’ve dabbled on gravel and some smoothish dirt and it remained stable and fun. It has room for up to 35mm tyres without guards or 30mm with the Whyte black guards fitted. Fast enough for anyone who’s not not WVA/TP etc!

I have taken great care of this and have recorded the maintenance I have done and when it’s had new parts. There are very few marks on it. The chain was replaced in April 2023 and has since only done 350km. The rear tyre was replaced Nov 22. Both tyres are set up tubeless currently. The wheels are running sweet and true.  There is a cut on the bar tape on one side but it doesn’t annoy! The brake calipers were replaced (Tiagra) and set up by a pro mechanic about a year ago. The levers remain Ultegra. 

It comes complete with the custom made stealth mud guards which make it a perfect year round bike. One bike to rule them all!

I’m selling as I have gravitated more to the off-road side of things and it’s one bike in and one out for me.
