wow! I like a lot how it looks, most of the English bikes I see, are for my taste too high on the front and they have too much sloping. But this one looks killer for me; perfectly balanced geometry

Thanks dude. Not a fan of sloping top tubes myself, so I asked Rob to keep it small (I think it's at 5.5 degrees).

Haven't bothered asking English, but I always wondered whether they'd make a horizontal top tube road bike. Is it a stiffness compromise? English TT bikes look great.

No issue with stiffness, but I did ask him to build it stiff. It certainly feels stiffer than both my old Scott Foil and Storck Fascenario 0.6.

Very impress, steel is bit on the heavy site but extremely on the comfort for long rides

Steel is not that bad actually if done right and Rob can do it right. I had my build just under 6000g and I could have had the frame built lighter and used lighter parts. Rob did a build that was under around 4500ish grams I believe.

Mine is a hair over 7kg. Could easily get it down to around 6kg if I cared about weight.

Heh, I used to care back in the day, but these days I just can't be bothered with it. I blame Storck because that bike was a waste of cash that made me quit the bike diet train.

I wasn't a big fan of English because of the sloping angles, but when I look at Sugarkane and Grill's bikes I really have to control myself not to order one.

Great looking bikes guys, enjoy them!

Such an amazing thing I will most certainly have to get another


Stunning! I really like the color on this one, the carbon weave is a great contrast, aesthetically excellent!
