Kinesis Racelight Granfondo Ti V2 Frameset
- The GF_Ti is manufactured by the builders of some of the worlds best Ti frames, using top quality, Cold Worked and Stress Relieved, double-butted tubing.
- This frame has all the touches that will help to make it a friend for life;]
- Totally new taper head tube. Machined from billet and engraved with ‘Kinesis UK’ icon.
- Now with clearance for 28c [depending on brand] when using full size ‘guards [refer to FAQ's 16]. Geometry is set for long-reach [47-57mm] calipers, this gives far more clearance for larger tyres.
- New ‘Tracer 1.5′ Taper 1.5, 450g, monocoque carbon fork with eyelets and clearance for full-size ‘guards and long-drop calipers.
- Tough 7mm dropouts are double-eyeletted to easily accomodate rack and mudguard stays and our own brake bridge gives maximum tyre clearance.
- Top tube is re-profiled with horizontal ovalisation, giving greater lateral stiffness when out of the saddle, complimenting the new fork and headtube.
- Down tube is Bi-ovalised where it meets the BB and Headtube.
- Increased BB drop for stability at speed, precision cornering and better fit.
- Welds at highly stressed area’s like the head tube and BB are ‘double pass’, ensuring proper penetration and a decent fillet on the second pass.
- Seat stays are curved with a 2m radius, providing silky smooth comfort over long distances. Chain stays are deep section and set wide at the BB for stability, we use ‘Bullet’ ends to finish them off perfectly.
- All eyelets are welded, not riveted, so they will never come loose. There is a ‘chain keeper’ on the RHS seat stay to neatly hold the chain when the wheel is out.
- All stops, including down tube adjusters are slotted, making cable servicing much easier, adjusters are high qual. anodised alloy.
- Hand brushed finish with heat cured decals.
