- My New Bike!!!

A few parts are carried over from the old Ti, cassette, rear mech, bb and crank arms/spider. The rest is new and would have cost all new 3.5-3.7k. Approx £500 was already there.
Not the lightest build though, the tyres and forks are quite heavy. It comes in @ less than 26lbs, but it rides ace and will not fall to bits!CountZeroMember

Bar ends on risers: I’ve never needed them since going over to risers twelve years ago, and the layback seatpost. Just can’t see the need if the frame is sized appropriately. I’m 5’11”, I ride 18″ Inbreds with 70mm stems and inline posts and my riding position is spot-on. Whatever. It is a very pretty bike, and overall the spec is spot on. I particularly like the Middleburns, very classy. And X0. Sweet. Good weight, too, just right for an all-day bike, without being too risky on really rocky stuff. Nice.hungry monkeyMember
well, i love it. Ok, the bar ends don’t look great… Aut the rise in a riser doesn’t negate car ends, its generally the width. I, personally, swear by bar ends, and have had them on risers before. My new bike doesn’t have them and i much prefer it with ends on… I find climbing better.Posted 8 years ago
