Bike Weight vs Bike Geometry - July 16, 2021, 11:18 a.m.

I've been riding my ripmo af for 18 months and whilst it's a heavier bike than my last few it's by far and away the most comfortable to ride, for any type of riding, and I believe this makes it an easier bike to ride on climbs. I've had more pb's on this bike than any other. 

In this time I haven't trained or exercised any differently either so I'm attributing this to the bike.

For me if I enjoy riding a bike I'm more than happy to pedal it anywhere.

Corsair Was High Pivot AND Pedaling, In 2007 - June 30, 2021, 12:30 p.m.

Great article. I came very close to buying a 2nd hand corsair but it fell through in the end. My friend did have a maelstrom which seemed to have never ending idler issues causing the chain to jam. I still have the go-pro footage of him losing his temper with the bike out in morzine and throwing it into some bushes!

First pedalable FS bike for me, and still one of my favourites, was the cannondale prophet, although I think the pitch was a better bike. Geo wise it just seemed way ahead of the times.
