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.
"Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position.
Felt more connected and compact on the bike.
Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

"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."
"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."
"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!"
"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. "
