BOTM: MY OFFROAD ROAD BIKE - part1

Andy Kessler - 10-May-2019
So, after two limited editions reserved for USA and Europe, it is now about time to have a BOTM that everybody can buy no matter where he/she lives on this planet.

A while ago I sold my last Cervélo R5 Road Bike that I had from my previous job at Cervélo and U.P.-graded to what you can see in the video here:

“...no matter where **they** live on this planet.” i’m sure you did not intentionally leave out the many non-“he”-s who love to ride OPENs. :-)

Yes definitely, and usually something bigger too. Depends a bit on the rim it is mounted on though.

Hi Raphael, several options depending on how light or how tight you want to go:
1) Ass saver
2) clip-ons
3) a shower afterwards :-)

I usually have a combination of an Ass saver in the rear and a clip on upfront, in combination with #3 afterwards of course.
