why the frame? why the wheels etc.... a really nice looking , different build, don't see any Prydes in the UK ( not that i have seen anyways)
i "found" neil pride as brand already last year, but then already had bought a nice frame. I really like the design of neilprydes bikes and there philosophy about building bikes without compromise and no cutting corners to get a frame out fast. if they have to use a wind tunnel, they do (they have spent a lot of time in wind tunnel with alize), even if it cost a lot. no shapes on the frames are there just for aesthetic, every shape on the frame has a "reason" and a thought behind it. Think it was madcow here on ww, that had meet Mike Pryde, and had the same "feeling" about the brand. Mike is really serious about it, and the weight on the site has to be real, if it say 1040 frame for a same in L, it has to be with everything, and the heaviest colour and so on, så when customers get it, it´s 1040 or less, no more. Have talked some with both Mike Pryde and Mike Rice (you can se him here, presenting the Bura SL http://www.bikeradar.com/road/news/arti ... ok--33370/
) on internet over mail and messages, and they are really serious people and have one of the best service i have found on the market, answer fast (even middle of the night), good service, ever to solve problems and to give superb service. I don't get any payment for saying this, this is how my impression of them is. There bike also have got a lot of good feedbags in reviews. will be interesting to se reviews on there new super light frame and there time trial frames.
The wheels, manly because of that i got a really good price on them in a local store and that the distributor here in sweden, has the office in the city where i live and there service technician is one of my friends, so if i get problem i know it get solved fast.
the handlebar came from my 2011 bike, but i really like it, like the shape and how stif it is. Sram red 2012, who don´t whant the latest gears
Also like the shapes of the hoods and how good they work, and the function
The crankset, i like the design, i like that they have 30 mm axle (the frame desk´t have bb30, other ways i would have hollow gram sisal, the Bura SL will have PF30) and the rotor q-rings. had them last year, and i imagine that they are good for my knees (have knee problems).
