First ride today after the winter break. It's fantastic riding with a bike weighing 7,2 kg instead the 9,2 one i rode in the last months...

Nice bike Hoven. I've said it before but these Ultimate CFs really do hide their size well, really doesn't look like a 'big bike'.


Yes they really do! I think it´s because the very oversized downtube :)

Will be replacing the Ultimate AL now as I was t-boned Friday and the frame took the brunt of the force from the car... hopefully the replacement will be just as nice :-)


Sounds bad and hope you are OK! Yes the new Ultimate looks very good!

Thanks. It's a sanded FSA SL-K crankset with a Quarq Cinco spider and Rotor chainrings.

Not sure - are tan sidewalls like Veloflex Roubaix and low profile rims like Campy Neutron tubular a fine idea or not?

Yes! Like the look of tan sidewalls with low profile rims!

Low profile alloy rims didn't fit my Aeroad... the frame is simply too beefy. Had to let the Extralite's go... :)

That is a great build. Sometimes I wish I was shorter. Bikes look so good in that size.

Love it Lone Wheeler looks great with the Lightweights. I love my AL as much as my CF. Where did source the Syntace stem?

Cannot wait for better weather here in the Uk so I can get my white CF out to play. Currently debating adding a splash of green the break the black and white up on mine

Hi, Syntace stem came from Bike24 in Germany, I have used them a few times now and they have been great.
