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!"
"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."

"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. "
"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."
"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."
