Just been lucky enough to be given this badboy to race for the season. Haibike are a German brand whom some of you may not be familiar with. First impressions of it indicate that its going to be super fast, it feels really stiff and lively. Although its not Nano-weight, it weighs in at 6.9kg from the factory. Its sporting Ultegra 11 speed and a DT Swiss 'Spline Wheelset', although I'll be racing it on carbon Tubs. Let me know what you think to it and I'll keep you updated on how its riding, and what changes, if any, I make to it.

Here's a better photo, the red stem/bars combo won't be to everyone's tastes but it actually looks pretty good in person. I will probably be putting a 110 or 120mm stem on it anyway but might wait until March when Zipp release their new 1 1/4" compatible stem.

Thankyou! I think so too, it certainly rides great! If anybody in the UK is interested in them then check out Bike Motion down in Exeter. They keep a load of the road, mountain and electric bikes from Haibike in stock.
