The Kibo Disc is a British made expedition bike with the frame and forks hand built by one of England’s top framebuilders, Lee Cooper.
The lugged frame is built using the strongest gauge of the air hardened Reynolds 631 steel tubing on the main triangle,. The forks are disc specific Reynolds 631 with a Pacenti fork crown. The chainstays are Reynolds 631 and the seatstays Reynolds 725.
The components include quality parts from TRP, Ryde, Ergon, Shimano and Brooks. The transmission consists of Microshift thumbshifters, Shimano T551 triple compact triple chainset, Deore touring specific front derailleur and XT touring rear derailleur.
The brakes are TRP Spyke mechanical disc brakes, they're the best in our opinion. The TRP Spyke is a dual sided mechanical brake where both pads actuate giving an even and precise clamping force. This translates into even pad wear. The pads can be adjusted easily and independently with a 3mm allen key, as well as a simple cable barrel adjuster to adjust both the pads simultaneously.
On the Kibo Disc we pair the Spykes with a 180mm front rotor and 160mm at the rear.
The wheels are hand built using Ryde Andra 30 disc specific expedition rims with Deore XT 36 hole disc hubs. The tyres are the Marathon Plus Tour 26 x 2.0" expedition ready.
The grips are the excellent Ergon biokork GP5 for great comfort and hand position options.
The ahead stem is our recommended for expedition touring, but if you prefer quill then we can build your frame with the narrower headtube and a 1" threaded steerer.
