The most popular groupset we fit to our Open frames is SRAM's Force 1 x 11 groupset. It is a simple mechanical groupset that appeals to many who want to travel further afield and have the ability to adjust the gears themselves and not worry about a battery going flat. The cassette goes up to 40 teeth for the steepest climbs.
Choose from a 38 tooth chainring for mostly off road riding or a 42 tooth for a higher top end. Wheels are 650B Mavic Crossmax for offroad adventures shod with Schalbe's Racing Ralph tyres. Finishing kit and saddle are by Bontrager, good value quality aluminum handlebars, stem and seatpost. The Montrose saddle - available in three widthds and three models provides excellent support and comfort.
"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"Very very personalised service. You arrive, they expect you, greet you by first name, have checked your file from past visits and set out very clearly what the process will be, what issues they're looking to address and how and they are happy to take the time to walk you through everything in layman's terms. Almost any professional service entity could learn a lot from how Cyclefit works. "
"A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

"A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"

"I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
