Sergio and his Gustav 530 have now completed the Transpyr Backroads 2017 randonee. Sergio has been working with us for almost two years and although he has ridden many kilometers on our wood and carbon frames he has never had the opportunity to really run with the ball. Most of his spring training this year has been done on his trusty carbonfiber Gios frame. For the Transpyr we built a new stock Gustav frame and fitted it with a set of carbon medium profile wheels and a SRAM Red Groupset. All in all the hottest performance kit we can offer without going over the edge. She weighed in at under 7,5 kilos ready to roll and she was stiffer and smoother than any other frame of her size on the market.
We at Coh&Co enjoy discovering and exploring just how unique a riding experience our wood and carbon fiber frames are. The resilience of the frame absorbs road "noise" like nothing else out there, while the carbon/wood combination provides a stiffness and power transfer unmatched by anything else on the road.
Next week we are of to the north of Spain to follow our very own Sergio Sanchez Alcalde as he crosses the back bone of the Pyrenees in the race Transpyr Backroads 2017.
