I'm now looking at getting something similar myself (will wait to thoroughly test out my wifes new bike first). I actually wanted a Sportive Disc as well but not sure we should be 'that couple' with matching bikes. Looking into the Kona Rove Ti frameset and building it up with similar spec's. Anyone have any thoughts on the Kona Rove Ti ?


The Kona Rove Ti is built by Lynskey :-)

Sorry for the highjack but what are your thoughts on his fit up process?

I need to get my wife to a bike fitter, have one in mind but Andy is just around the corner from my home.

Andy definitely knows his stuff and is willing to put in the time. I struggle with accents a lot so that is something to consider.

I guess the proof is in the pudding. Once Jen gets her bike we will access how well it fits.

You can talk to his young sidekick about a number of issues.

My wife and I got matching steel CXes made up by BikePro.
