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.
"I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."
"The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."
"A highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."
"Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
"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,
