Has anyone ever bought one of these?  They seem like an incredibly well specced bike for £599.  Carbon forks, Shimano R501s, a full Tiagra Groupset and Deda stem/seat post?!

The 2013 model looks really nice as well.

I can't find much about them in terms of reviews - can anyone help?


  • I bought a Malt-RS last October and it's a goob bike. I think the new model is the same but now about £100 cheaper.

    The ride can be a bit hard or that could just be the poor roads around here.

    I'm 5' 10(and a half) and the 56cm is about right.

    I bought one last year. I have had no problems and like it.

    Bought last years Malt RS and love it. Great spec for the money and even though it staed RS501 i got RS10's on mine. As mentioned above the frame is perhaps a little harsh but at that price most will be. According to a few folk last years RS was a repainted Sensa Romagna frame. Not sure about this years though. As for sizing 5ft 11 and 56 is bang on.
