  • IT'S ARRIVED. Pictures to follow tonight. It's awesome.

  • So that was a long gap - in need of a tidy up with wiring and general clean

  • Nice. I'm commuting on my Spa at the minute. Weirdly saw a other one today - only the second ever example in the wild!

    I still don't like their decals tho. I really wanna get mine resprayed at some point and redesign them.

  • Now with bag insert and clean wiring (also general cleaning!)

  • Totally agree with decals and colour - paint is pretty durable so I'll likely leave it at the moment. I've seen one other one in scotland on was the red version of the tourer and looked pretty ace.

  • Having loved my tourer so much, a new plan is coming into being...

    I'm considering their immensely good offer on 631 tourers for my gf. So reviving the forum wisdom once more...

    Would this work out as similar to a ridgeback velocity 17"? E.g. with a 375mm reach.Ā­s/631tourergeometry.pdf

  • Some investigation later - It seems that 51cm spa cycles tourer is basically a 17" ridgeback hybrid. Only thing I'm missing is working out the BB drop. I might measure that tonight on mine.

  • I was surprised how "long and low" my Spa Audax was when I put its geo into that visualisation tool.

  • Sorry to dig up this thread.
    Was gon order some rigida sputniks and system ex hubs from them but wanted to check whether they're total shit or not.

  • I found their service pretty good, but all I did was order a frameset. They seem to do quite a brisk trade in handbuilt wheels, which suggests they know what they're doing - especially for the touring crowd.

  • Have always had good service from them; as noted above, their wheels are popular with the touring and audax crowd.

  • I have a handbuilt rear from them for sale if you're interested...ambrosio x exal, silver, just a few hundred miles on it

  • Can you PM me with details?
