Another day, another possible winter bike option.

Kinesis have announced the new Racelight TK3 which looks interesting and, assuming the geometry stays the same as the TK2, should fit me nicely.

Currently the winter bike options, in no particular order, look as follows:

  • Singular Osprey (XL, frame and forks) = £510-£730 depending on whether I go for the chromed version or not, the 1" headset still puts me off a bit though.
  • Enigma Ethos (59, frame only) = £925
  • Enigma Etape (59xl, frame only) = £1199
  • Shand Skinnymalinky (Large) = £960 (frame) £140 (matching fork)
  • Kinesis Tk3/Tk2/T2 (63cm) = £various – the only aluminium option on the list.
  • Surly Pacer (60cm, frame and forks) = £350 – the cheap option

At this rate I’ll probably just end up riding the Ribble until it breaks.

    I’m sure the Ribble can last another 90 miles ;)

    (You’re over thinking all this, just buy the prettiest)
