  • No.12 current set up, there's a few things i would like to upgrade but loving it atm.

    Advice needed:
    It has alot of chips etc now, what product shall i use to protect the steel from rusting? I have been using Muc-off miracle shine as polish but thought that might be something better out there.

  • I tend to use a wax product to help with the scratches and then in between applications use a bike spray like you're using

    If you reach out to the team at ISEN they can also sort you out with some touch up paint for the black, which is often the area which gets the worst scratches. Did wonders for mine.

  • Out of interest what wax product do you use?

    Yes I have done and it's sorted now, most of my scratches are on the black so hopefully it'll work wonders

  • I'm a big fan of it too and the ethos behind some of the decisions, I'd love a similar ISEN with a bit more of a road / light gravel geometry.

  • I used a product which is now discontinued by user of of here.­61/?offset=525#comment13768331

  • Lovely looking bikes.
    Some of these coatings are excellent for protecting bare metals:­applications

  • Anyone set up there ISEN with silver mudguards? If so could you share a photo?

    I'm getting fed up of the wiggle in the PDWs and thinking of switching to something else. Honjo do the H41 in black I can import from Japan, or GB do the powdercoated 40mm guards, but pricey.

    Could get some candy fadez guards to match, but worry about scratching...

  • Anyone tried 650b 42mm on a 55 cm all season? Thinking it would be nice summer set up.

  • No, but I can confirm that 650b 47mm doesn't fit!

  • Mine had to be returned multiple times for resetting in order for it to take 42mm tyres which was what i had been told it could take.

  • Hi scott,

    Can confirm 42c is fine. We also have a gravel variant now that will take 48c if you want to go bigger. Drop us an email if you would like any more info, or can speak on phone if you want.

  • Thanks! Gonna give it a go!

  • Selling some Isen specific (12mm front / QR rear) dynamo wheels here
