“Well she went into the wild. I put on the 28[cc] [Continental GP]4000 tires. If I owned one bike this would be it. Set my season best so far during 1 hr TT test in the marsh.

You sit into the bike and that is nice. I really like disk brakes. First things you notice is the drive train and how smooth everything is. Next the Frame [&] seat post really absorbs bumps. Would (will) be a super Gran Fondo bike.

Pretty stiff, I did a 1hr TT effort and the frame is right there. Was averaging 33 k in the marsh on pretty rough roads mostly into the wind. Tires really absorbed well.

The bars are nice. Feel wider, just measured and are wider (44). Perfect for that bike. Just a bit more control on rougher roads.

Seat position, setback is perfect. Bit more upright is good for now. Seems the head tube is not as aggressive, so I can see why will probably lower later.

Overall I think this is an awesome machine and I will spend most of my training time on it. With the wheel flexibility, you can do anything.

Also she is a looker for sure, just a stunning build.

Also cannot believe the Powertap pedals. So happy with them. Just install and ride, just love it.

Something very special about being able to ride the best bikes ever put on the road.”

One thought on “OPEN U.P. Review

  1. Also looking for a “One ring to rule them all” sort of thing. Have a four year old Wilier Cento Uno but looking at all the new tech available now makes me yearn for an updated ride. This orange object of lust checks the boxes. Multi purpose geometry – check. Electronic shifting – check. Enclosed fork hubs – check. Disk brakes – check. Internal cables – check. Power meter in pedals – check. Room for larger wheels – check. Nice job kitting this out. Between my Wilier road bike and Giant off track bike this looks like the ticket. Very nice.
