Here’s the original Tripster, which was great fun and really got me convinced about the merits of disc braked road / commute / cross bikes.
and the ridiculously good Tripster ATR that replaced it a year ago.
That ^^ bike epitomises a ‘do it all’. I commute 22 miles each way on it once or twice a week, I blat round on it of an evening for a bit of exercise and I’ve just done a 90 miler on it this morning. It tours, it flies up hill, you can ride it all day, it’s stable on ‘gravel’, weighs little more than a regular race bike yet doesn’t flinch at the crappy roads round here. The mudguards are off for the summer and it’s running on 25mm tyres until the weather gives up, but it very soon became clear that I didn’t need the carbon road bike after it arrived. I hardly ride anything else now.Posted 3 years agomonksieMember
Thanks Daffy. It rides superbly. I normally choose 54cm road bikes but I went for 52 with the Colnago. I fitted a 120mm stem and pushed the seat right back on its rails and it handles better than any road or ‘cross bike I’ve had before. The bars are 5mm lower than in the photo now as well.Posted 3 years ago
