The Kinesis Gran Fondo Sc is part of the eight frame Racelight road range which has something for the racer, distance rider, sportive rider, TT'er, commuter and tourer – pretty much every type of road cyclist then. The Gran Fondo is designed to ride like a race bike but with the geometry tweaked a bit to give a slightly more forgiving ride. I tested it alongside the new Gran Fondo Ti and it was interesting to compare the Easton alloy tubing with the renowned comfort of a titanium frame.
New for 2011/12 a titanium Gran Fondo frameset enters Kinesis's Racelight range, using the tried and tested geometry of the scandium version which we're testing alongside the GF_Ti as an experiment in comparing frame materials directly. The GF_Ti is all about taking advantage of titanium's ability to deliver a frame that's comfortable, durable, and long lasting.
Selling my Kinesis K415 TT Frame, it's never been built as it was a show frame. It has a few marks and a little chip on the forks. Come with a Carbon Seat Post, Forks, and Headset. Selling as I bought a complete Giant Trinity instead.
Size is 47cm.
I'm after £350 + P&P
Kinesis have a distinguished history in cyclo-cross, producing a well respected range of frames, good enough for National Championship status no less, and a veritable cutlery drawer of forks in both carbon and alloy. The RC09 fork is the culmination of all their knowledge and experience in this field, a particularly muddy field. Rather than a "Me Too" fork with a different sticker on which is all too common these days the RC09 has been designed from the sloppy ground up to meet the quirky demands of an hour in the muck.
