Open UPPER - Shimano Di2 1x11 & Lightweight Build

Open Upper Lightweight 3

One of our favourite's from the Summer is Paul's Open UPPER frameset built with Lightweight Wegweiser wheels and finishing kit.This bike is for the steep, hilly roads of Hong Kong and has a pair of 650b wheels on standby for trail riding. The Shimano 1 x 11 build is particularly suitable for hilly areas and makes the standard 2 x11 chainset redundant as the need to change from big ring to small and vice versa at the bottom and top of climbs is no longer neccessary.The Lightweight Wegweiser wheels with their carbon spokes work very well with the matt carbon of the frame with the only colour highlight the Open graphic around the bottom of the head tube.

Though the Open UPPER is a 'gravel bike' the high quality carbon lay-up means this bike handles equally well on and off-road and the bike is fast and nimble on asphalt. Combined with the all carbon Lightweight wheels this bike purrs along.

What our clients say

  • "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, Hannah"

  • "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."

  • "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."

    Susan

    Cyclist

  • "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."

    Matt H

    Seven Evergreen SL

  • "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."
