my isens been great. 2 years no problems at all. No one asked - but just thought i'd share.
p.s - first batch of isens imo are not gravel bikes. stick some road tyres in there and go for a ride. Have fun. Repeat.
Same sentiment here. I find it is more of an all season road-bike with generous road clearances rather than gravel bike. The Columbus Futura Gravel fork is not that generous with clearances either and in my opinion not really a gravel fork.
Only issue with my gen1 is that the dropouts are a couple mm narrower than 135mm so a pain getting rear wheel in and out.
Yeah Kat loved riding her bike on the road before the crash. When we were deciding whether to get another Isen as the replacement or look elsewhere it was the fact that the 51cm frame had recently been redesigned with bigger clearances and specifically for 650b wheels (previously was 650c and 26inch) that clinched it. The bike needs to serve both long days in the saddle on the road but also gravel and bike packing.
Clearance for 42c plus guards seemed the ideal amount for the bikes intended uses....
