|Although it wasn't my bike then, it is now!|
I asked Twin Six if they'd sell it to me and for how much.
I'd pretty much never done that in a decade of reviewing stuff. But, I liked this bike that much. I just am very surprised that it rides as smooth as it does and with such stability and yet has a certain snap. Hard to 'splain it, but all you need to know is that I like it a lot.
The Bike: Twin Six Standard Rando. It is a bike with many purposes, but it seems to suit my gravel travels quite nicely. Here's a quick run down of what it has on it and one thing it will have on it soon....
- Frame/Fork: Twin Six ain't sayin' what kind of steel this is, but it rides really well.
- Drivetrain: SRAM Rival 22 w/mech disc brakes.
- Bars/Stem: fizik with Torx fasteners. (Why?!!)
- Wheels: Here's the part I didn't buy when I got the bike. I am building up some White Industries hubs to WTB KOM rims. Stay tuned.....
Other than that, I probably will end up ditching the crazy fizik stuff and especially that saddle. I see a set of Cowbells headed for this bike, a different stem without Torx bolts, and lighter seat post. But first the wheels and tires will get done. I have a saddle as a replacement, but the rest will come much later.
