- New bike: Kinesis Sync
Retired my FF29 today and picked up a new Sync frame, it’s lush! Trying it on the dirt tomorrow…Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
hummerlicious : very nice indeed – looks proper!.
gonetothehills : you won’t be disappointed with it, mine arrived in the shop yesterday and has been getting many an “Oooh & Ahh” from peeps today but i’ve not had time/parts to fully build it up yet as the build kit supplied had the wrong seatpost and front mech (build kit for the alloy tripster) but not to worry as it’ll be my friday afternoon job to finish it off, here’s a bad pic of how it looks at the moment.
It’s very light…… 😀

All the kit was on a green FF29, hence the green grips, a couple of green anodised bits and the green stans rim decals.
@gonetothehills I love the Tripster ATR, I had a good look at it yesterday, I’d love one of them too.
@matther01 they do a small version with 650b wheels for the vertically challenged

That is the utter dogs-bollox, it’d match my tripster very nicely 😉 , but i’m a shortarse so i’ll stick to my 26″ (for now anyway). Personally i’d lose the rim and fork stickers but that’s just me although i do like the subtle frame graphics – less is most definitely more.Posted 4 years ago
rOcKeTdOg: DT needs to be curved to give big wheel/long fork crown clearance. TT has slight curve because I feel it adds a little ping and life into the ride. There really isn’t anything that hasn’t been done for a performance reason on this frame. But yes, if straight, round tubes are your priority then the SYNC isn’t for you.Posted 4 years ago
TheGingerOne: A shame to reject an ‘almost perfect’ bike because of the BB shell. BB30 I would agree is not good, but PF30 works very well, we have tested loads of p.types before settling on this BB std. for production.Posted 4 years ago
Also, many riders want to run SS and PF30 allows you to use an FSA eccentric BB adapter, allowing you to run SS without a tensioner.
The large BB shell also gives us a large area to weld onto.
