  • It looks excellent, well dome. What size is the frame?

  • Thanks, the bag really ties it together.

    Frame is a size 58cm.

  • Very good.

  • Needs mint coloured backdrop and evening light

  • Congrats with your new bike.
    It is really nice.

  • That rack/bag is lovely!

  • Yes yes yes yes.

  • Bloody gorgeous, great work on the bags Tijmen!

  • bag & bike are a fantastic match

  • This just gets better.

  • Love this. Feel chonkier tyres wouldn't go amiss.

  • Thanks all, pretty chuffed with the end result. First real ride will be this weekend, excited about that.

    And so you should be, looks absolutely lovely. That bag really finishes it off!

  • Matchy matchy of Flite logo is top drawer biz. Bag really tied everything together beautifully .

  • magnificent.

  • Beautiful 140k ride today to break in the bike. Very happy with how it performed.

    If I were to sum up the ride experience in one word, it would be 'smooth'. Even with the 42c tyres at relatively high pressures, it seems so iron out a surprising amount of road buzz.

    Only thing I don't like about it is that I can make it shimmy a bit on the straight. But if I keep my hands on the bars, I think I can live with that.

  • new forum fave

  • Shimmy both with and without bag?

  • Bag amplifies it I think. Will have to check.

  • Needle bearing headsets or keeping a knee on the top tube when no handed are the usual suggestions to counter shimmy.

  • Needle bearing headsets

    And do away with the Chris King headset?! Never!

    Kidding aside, thanks for the tip. Might look into that in the future if it keeps bothering me. It only shimmies when I wiggle the handlebars, so not a huge deal.
