This is the recently released and stunning GF_Ti v2 which now brings a tapered steerer (in a beautifully machined heatube), newly ovalised top tube and downtube, room for 28mm tyres and longdrop brakes as well as the same attention to detail that brought the original such glowing reviews.
The changes to the frameset have turned this into a fast, high performance and stunning frameset. However after less than 300 miles, I know it’s not the right frameset for me personally, so I’m offering it up for sale and it's a fantastic all year round bike. Considering it just a winter bike is very much selling it short.
Available for sale ideally as a full build but I’m also open to selling just the frameset (frame, fork, headset).
The retail price for the frameset is £1450 and given I’ve done less than 300 miles I’m looking for £1200 for the frameset or £1850 for the full build.

Kinesis GF_Ti v2 titanium frameset (57cm)
