OK, as well as my Kona Dew Deluxe I also am the (very) proud owner of a Kiron Scandium which draws comments wherever it goes and every pedal input appears (except on f***ing widecombe hill - but I digress), to go straight into propelling me forward.

Now I can't afford another bike for a while but knowing the real cyclists lie here on the commuting forum :wink: I thought I would prewarn a few of you about this.

THis looks to be in the same vein as my beautiful red bike but in ultra fashionable white. Good luck bargain hunters.

    Congrats. :D
    Did ponder a Kiron before I finally saw the too good to refuse planet-x offer at xmas. It has had some really good reviews.

    It's taking every ounce of self control not to buy the Ribble carbon sportive special £999 :shock: for a campag centaur carbon WTF :shock:

    How much would I get for my nearly new Trek 1.7 ???

    I thought that this may be more interesting to the commuting crowd as it seems to be a slightly lower spec than mine, as it the fork is an EC70 not EC90 so this could be around £750. Good commuting price that.

    These got a very good review in C+ - glad you're enjoying it. :)

    I had a steel Raleigh in my childhood days in Devon. Ottery St Mary to Sidmouth and back with no gears was flippin hard work. :)

    All the Kiron news including the Gran Fondo which does not appear to be the white bike in terms of spec. All genuinely exciting news though.
