Fucking epic, no really. And that's before I try it with the Excellight 28 / 32s which arrived from DCR wheels this morning.

I've had mine about 3 years now and I'm very pleased with it, good finish and rides very well, comfy but also responsive, even with a Carradice Audax bag and rack attached.

She's done everything from the Devil Mountain Double to the Flatands 600k without a problem. An excellent purchase, although I did build mine myself with custom parts, so I can't comment on a standard build.

Not a Sportive but I`ve got the R230 Lynskey which has same angles IIRC but less mudguard ability and it`s an amazing bike to ride, fast , super comfy and at a squeeze get PDW guards in with 23 mm---so Sportive will no doubt be really a do it all super bike when you build it up  :thumbsup:

Well I have now built mine up, well that was about a month ago now and I have done around 500 miles, wow what a bike it will take 28's and mudguards as I have a  disc brake frame and there is loads of clearance. It is so comfy but fast perfect for the long rides, I went with TRP HY/RD brakes and they are great, I put a 11spd 105 groupset off my old bike onalong with some Fulcrum wheels (I plan on getting something a little lighter at a later date) I won some Schwalbe tyres from a competition on twitter so put them on they are 25c so there is acres of clearance. Very highly recommended.  :thumbsup:
