Nice proportions on the 17" frame, and cool smattering of red components too - really like that
What weight does the complete bike top out at, and whereabouts on the Downs is that?
I wondered if it would be too much red, as the original had a blue Z2, but actually I think the all-blue look was maybe a bit too conservative for my liking - after all, the bike is called Explosif!
I would guess that it weighs 24lbs, as my 97 Kilauea is just under 23 with SIDs and those wheels - and the Kilauea frame is 0.15 lighter and the SIDs are a pound lighter than the Z2s. I can't claim to have noticed the difference though, even up hills as the frame feels so efficient.
The houses in the distance are the western edge of Ditchling, but what do you make of the thing on the left?
