I bought this frameset in the autumn of 2017, and built the bike up with the best spec components I could afford. It’s basically Sram Force 22 groupset with custom wheels from Strada.

I haven’t had much time to put miles on the bike due to the abnormally long and snowy winter, although I have managed to greatly increase my snow shovelling muscles…..

So in summary I am still getting used to this bike and need to put in at a rough guess at least 1000 miles before I can give any qualified comments on how it compares to anything else. It is just so different to my other bikes and requires a different set of neural pathways set up in order to ride it effectively.

I can see it is going to be ridiculously fast once I’m used to it – I will post more as and when I feel able to give an objective account.
