Well, it's MTB based, but it's for use on the road. 20lbs all in.


Stumpy S-Works HT frame, 11-21 cassette, Ultegra short cage derailleur, carbon forks (500 grams!), Easton XC One wheels, SLX chainset.

    Get thee to the commuter section infidel!

    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

    Yes, well spotted. it is indeed an 18" and I'm 6ft.
    Still the top tube is easily long enough, and I guess the small size helps get the weight down a bit.

    Looks nice.

    Methinks you're going to want to raise the gearing though - I commute on my hardtail that I've currently fitted with a 36/46T chainset, although I reckon I could use a 48T to optimse my speed... and my bike probably weighs nearer 25lb+
