Kinesis T2 winter bike

I built this a few weeks ago although wheels only just replaced, still need to cut steerer and probably change the seatpost at some point. It's a great ride and very comfortable, especially with 25mm tyres. Most components and parts were handed down so needed new hubs, spokes, brakes and few other small bits to complete. I fancied a change from black or blue even though it's not the best choice for winter.

    Nice bike, but as always with self builds, shifters in the wrong position... Far too low

    Lovely bit of kit though

    'As always with self builds'? Eh?

    I did notice yesterday the shifters were too low and I'm not sure why I did that - now adjusted. It's only the second road bike build I've completed so a novice only and learning all the time, so thanks for pointing it out. I'm sure a more experienced cyclist would have built them correctly from the off. :)

    Don't bother looking at anything ridden by Sean Yates then
