What our customers say...
"Dave I can't tell you how excellent it is. It's amazing. Fantastically comfortable and responsive. I have a very good riding position - a thousand times better than my old one. Did 33 miles on Saturday morning and loved every minute (apart from one very steep hill as I have pretty high gearing). First ride out another rider complimented the build and specifically the lug work and asked where it was built. Can't thank you enough. Rupert"
