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.
"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!"
"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 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!
"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,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"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."
