    Great looking bike, nice choice of specs and build. Well done.
  • Cracking looking bike and nice spec. I'm going round in circles looking for a winter bike with disc and full guards. Off to check Kinesis web site....
  • Very nice bike!
    I have liked the look of the Kenisis bikes for a while now, and the new Crosslight 5t fits exactly the kind of cross bike I need for commuting and cross racing on.

    That and the orange paint scheme looks sick! 8)

    Very nice indeed. Still very pleased with my Pro6, would be interesting to see how they compare. The rear caliper being inside the triangle does seem more sensible. Loud colours are definitely best on these things.
  • I've been looking at the 4s disc but prefer the color scheme of the 5t disc. I'm looking at using mine as a road bike only (for now), will continue to use my Cube for my off road duties

    How are you getting on with it now you've had a few months to settle in with it?
