I am about to embark on a build of a Kinesis Aithein, with a focus on weight and aggressiveness- this ain't gonna be no all day tourer.
At present I am also struggling to decide on the colour - black is drawing me in, but those other colours are slexy too!
Any riders of Aitheins - please give me your advice and feedback on the bike, how is the sizing etc? I'm around 5,8 and will be going for a 53cm frame - probably with a 110mm or 120mm stem.
Most likely I'll be going for SRAM Force 22, although may get drawn on a bit of Campy Chorus if the mood takes me...
Regarding wheels. I see alot of builds with Reynolds attack or assault on the bike. However, I'm struggling to source these wheels - any advice or feedback? I like to climb, but I live in Belgium, so if I run carbon wheels, they will need to stand up to being battered on pavé.
