Description

The V:8 gives the option of an internally mounted battery within the seatpost or externally mounted close to the bottlecage on the downtube.

Wheels are an important choice when buying a disc road bike. The benefit of a carbon fibre rim comes into its own when owning this bike. Take advantage of using wheels designed specifically for disc road bikes. Rims can become lighter due to not having to reinforce the braking surface due to heat build up from rim braking. Weight saved from the rim is counteracted by a few extra spokes to withstand the disc braking forces, a few extra spokes means a stiffer wheel, increasing performance.

    Just awesome! I’ve ridden and owned a lot of bikes and this stands out as one of the best. The frame has the subtle compliance of titanium but retains a feeling of urgency and excitement. A fast, comfortable bike that has lovely detail not to mention the customisation that make them really special. Time to save the pennies for a mountain bike upgrade now.

    I love this bike. I’m running a 55cm frame with Ultegra Di2 and Reynolds Attack wheels. For a sportive frame, the geometry is actually pretty aggressive – really similar to my Colnago M10 I use for racing. On my regular training loop it performs really well – fast and responsive, yet comfortable too.

    As for disc brakes, if you haven’t already made the leap, just do it. Predictable braking in all conditions and no more black gunk all over your rims, tyres and frame.

    Oh but be warned, because of its gorgeous looks, people will try to touch it. Small price to pay.
