KIBO FINISHING TOUCHES
A Brooks B17 saddle, obviously...
Tange Technoglide 1 1/8" headset
Powder coating: The Kibo is built for endurance so our frames and forks are powder coated, not just once but twice. Powder coat is one of the most durable and long lasting quality finishes available. It is more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading and wearing versus other finishes. The Kibo is double powder coated in a choice of any of our stock colours at no extra, or for a small charge a choice from a range of custom colours
Saddle: There is no other choice, the all time proven Brooks B17 expedition saddle, in brown. The more miles you clock the more comfortable it gets (and the better it looks...). We offer the S version for ladies.
Headset: On the Kibo ahead we use the Tange Seiki Technoglide 1 1/8", very reliable with its sealed cartridge bearings. On the Kibo with quill we use the reliable and maintenance free Stronglight Alloy A9 alloy cartridge headset.
Headbadge: The Stanforth headbadge is hand made in England from pewter. In the images you can see the process of it being made.
Finishings: The bars, stem, spacers, seatpost and headset are available in a choice of silver or black
