A light weight climbing machine in black and white
Starting with the Emonda SLR frameset as a mere 780 grams Rick added a SRAM eTap groupset with long cage rear mech so he can use a 30T sprocket. The wheels are Bontager's Aeolus 3 carbon tubeless ready hoops and are shod with Continental GP4000 28mm tyres; clearance is er, snug but the Bontrager caliper brakes allow more clearance than Shimano's. A Quarq power meter is installed that gives left and right power readings and compliments the SRAM and Bontrager components. A nice touch is the Nokon cable which makes the cable routing even neater as there are no Di2 wires spoiling the bike's lines. Carbon Isozone bars are fitted for added comfort and weight reduction.
"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"

"Julian was very knowledgeable and explained the fitting process very well. He came highly recommended and i completely agree. Very happy with the service.
Instantly felt better on the bike. The pain i had in my knee went away right away.
"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 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!"
"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."
