limited sizes and colours, but the prices are fantastic.


Now, if someone can convince them to do the same with the OPEN frames. Or maybe... 80% off?

Also, if they can let me know first, that's be awesome.

That I do. 57cm 4S Disc. 4,700km so far and no issues.

Only thing wrong is I paid $760, but that was still good

Pix might be nice, if you have time, and may possibly help someone else debating whether or not to pull the trigger on a Kinesis frame. Always helps to see one fully built up..

There's a few reviews I found online with pics, and helped realise although the price is good, flat mount disc brakes mean I can't use any 10sp 29er groupsets cheaply/immediately/easily despite the QR and 130 to 135 spacing features. Despite aesthetic likes for the racelight, the crosslight with external cables and larger tyre clearance better fits the parts bin winter commuter frame idea.

I had the same issue - post mount calipers. The bike comes with some adaptors, and I only had to buy one for the front at $20. So no issue there. Have a look at the Kenisis site as it shows the little 'parts kit' that it comes with.

I missed out on the Crosslight that would have been easier parts use and bigger tyre clearance, putting it off for a while. Last one left now was the Racelight, the ability to run my rim brake or 29er disc brake wheels, BSA 68mm BB, for the price of a road bike crankset, I gave in, yep I'll just have to learn the ways of internal cables now. Thanks (?) If any build threads going I'll have a search. I'm currently on Schwalbe Marathon Plus in rear 25c, closer to a 28c, so think I'll get a 28c Plus in the 30c with guards quoted. May be flatbar with 1x10sp Mountain RD for economy and onboard brands for aero flatter back rather than drops.

Bossi Bicycles are on special. I've just put an order in for the Pilot - Endurance Road Bike which at $850 for a Tiagra equipped disk braked roadie seems like very good value. This will be my new commuter and if it rides ok, wet weather bike.

This is a local Sydney outfit as I understand, I've seen their Titanium frame reviewed but not much mention of these lower end bikes. Seems like they might be having a hard time moving them with such deep discounts but I guess it's a competitive market.

Jeez even I am considering pulling the pin on that Endurance Bike as a commuter for work.....Not sure if I am better off picking up a 2nd hand Defy or something though.

Those Bossi bikes do look pretty well put together for the sale prices. I am torn though, I’m not sure I’m up to the drop bars on the Pilot (been years since I’ve really ridden), but I think the Carbon fork and other upgrades make it a better setup than the Link. I’m not sure how feasible it is to put a flat bar on it though?
