Very distinctive-----kind of reminds me of a herringbone suit-----you can see the carbon fibre was very nicely laid.

Well I am doing some work experience at the moment in Bristol and I ride it to work every day and I have no problem stoping even downhill:) I used to ride a 52 14 gearing brake less. This is easy. Yeah I get the parts sh and fix them if neded. Soon I will get this to my goal of 4 kg


I love the bike, but no foot retention is just silly. There's no way you can ride a 52 14 down a hill at 35 mph and then just stop without foot straps or clips when an old lady walks out in front of you or a car backs out. That's near 100 gear inches. The gear ratio you have now is more reasonable for stopping without retention, but it's just an unnecessariy risk and plain stupid.

Still idiotic. Still irresponsible.

Especially in Bristol which is completely on a hill. I live here too and ride a singlespeed.
