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.
"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."
"Thanks very much for consultation last week - since I saw you I do not have anything like the same amount of pain I was experiencing previously. I am so much more at ease with my new positioning and my posture feels right now."
"Thanks very much Phil.
Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects!
"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."
"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!"
