SamExcellent frameset, surprisingly good handling on tricky off road sections too. Wish I had gone one size smaller though, as this feels a bit more stretched out compared to my last gt grade.
Dave JohnsonGreat quality frame, very comfortable to ride and also fast when required, used it to build up a winter bike but this has enough sparkle to use through the summer also. Built mine up with Fulcrum racing 5 disc wheels and Shimano 105 R7000 hydraulic disc groupset. My build (54cm frame) weighs a smidge under 9kg without pedals. It really is a pleasure to ride !
KurtI was looking for a nice and sturdy frame for a first class winter bike build. I picked the Kinesis frame because I wanted a British brand with a top reputation. I have to say I am blown away with the quality and design of this frame, it is truly excellent. Delivery from Merlin was equally excellent, within 14 hours of ordering 😎😎
P. WalkerThis frame and fork are wonderful. It was a fun build and it rides like a dream. Delivery to the USA was quick
Mr HamiltonReally enjoying riding this bike now. Light, fast and comfortable. Merlin dispatched it to me really fast. Excellent service.
Mr houstonawsome bike cant fault it ..light weight .and handleing is great
Mr KocyigitGreat bike for all. Daily commute, to my weekend rides and my next summer long days bikepacking trips.
LuckyhawtenI bought this frame for my do it all bike. It looks fantastic and the quality is really good. Will take 35c tyres at the back and has wider clearance at the front. Perfect frame in my opinion for bikepacking which you can bring also for some races. You might want to order a cable guide under the BB for mine did not come with one. All in all I highly recommend this one and thank you for Steve and Julie of Merlin for assisting me!
