NEW YT VIDEO! NEW BIKE DAY + THE AMAZING BERD SPOKE / GS ASTUTO WHEELS

Better late than never they say but this, my 10th video, is about 2 months late. A severely painful ruptured disc in my lower back kept me off the bike for weeks, but finally it healed up.

To treat myself I decided to get built up a frame that I’d had kicking around my bike room for a couple of years.

I never thought I’d want to build this one as the colour is pretty out there, but I thought heck, why not?

In the end, I’m loving it!

This build also features an amazing wheelset, a GS Astuto build by my mate Tim Smith out in Japan, combined with DT Swiss 180 hubs and Berd polythylene spokes. These wheels weigh in at 1180g!

If you’ve never heard of these spokes, watch the vid! A full review is coming soon.

Hup!
