    Sold GT Bravado 1997

    GT Bravado in spiffing Reynolds 631 (main tubes). It is ~20” c-t BUT due to the short head tube it feels small, too small for me at 5’10”.

    Enigma Etape vs Giant Defy Advanced

    The geometry is virtually identical… Defy ~£2500 but comes with a proprietary wheel / tyre system. Etape ~£4200 for similar spec but conventional wheels Carbon is fragile. Ti cracks. I have a racy donor bike I could build either frameset up with 12mm axles and flat mount hydraulics. I’ve...

    ‘Dead’ handling

    You know how some bikes feel really springy and exciting to ride? Say high-end steel / ti / carbon weight weenies or such like. Well, I’ve managed to build a rigid hybrid that is only 9kg but it feels ‘wooden’ or ‘dead’ to ride. Previously I’ve found low-end 90s rigid bikes felt like this, I...
