- New bike and awesome customer service! Kinesis Racelight 4S
Previously to getting this new frame today, I had a Kinesis Racelight T, which I did just about everything on before it eventually died. After speaking to the awesome guys over at Kinesis, they were able to hook me up with the upgraded model 4S rather than the Racelight T2 under their ‘crash replacement’ scheme. Absolutely brilliant guys and I’m really grateful! Here’s to hopefully another nine years or more!
Buildkit is 105/PowerTap G3 on Open Pros, Rotor 3D+ cranks and 53/39 Q Rings, 105 5600 shifter, mechs, chain and cassette, KCNC post, F109 stem, Ritchey WCS Classic bars. A very old and very worn Fizik Aliante and crappy Gatorskin tyres (until I can find some 27c Pave CGIIs). SKS Bluemels and a Tortec rack finish it all off.
Total weight is a rotund 9.72 kgs, but I’m happy with that considering it’s designed to be durable and weatherproof.Posted 4 years ago
Pete, thanks for your comments!
No disc brakes cos I don’t want to have to buy a new Powertap.Posted 4 years ago
It’s got cables not under bar tape cos it’s daft to buy a whole new groupset when 5600 10 speed still works perfectly.
Aesthetics are a personal choice and I like it.
The previous frame cracked after nine years and 50k. That’s pretty good in my book.
And yes, it’s 10 speed. See above.
Hah, thanks. Bought them years ago for pure pimping – they’re Chris King spacers from Aspire.
I’ve got to admit to being a bit of a fanboi – I’ve had two Maxlights and a Crosslight, I’ve got a Decade Visa and now a 4S. Planning on replacing my race bike with an Athein and if they get around to making a Medium 650b Sync I’ll have one of those too!Posted 4 years ago
