My Koxx Kloud 26" **Updated 19th March**

19 posts in this topic

Updated, see below!

Evening all, thought I'd post a few updated photos of my long running Koxx Kloud as it's had some new bits and bobs recently such as the Trialtech rim brake hose which matches the frame rather well. Other stuff includes the super comfy Trialtech lever blades for both brakes and a hard anodised alloy rear sprocket. I'd really recommend the lever blades for anyone looking improve their brakes. They add a touch more power, but feel much comfier than the standard ones.

This bike is probably a little "old skool" to a few people now, but I'm of that era anyway haha and absolutely love this bike. Rides brilliant.

On to the pics:

Little update!

I've now been running one of the Trialtech Sport Lite M30 rear hubs and sprockets for a few weeks. That means the thread size on the sprocket and hub is M30, quite a bit smaller than the regular 1.37" x 24 tpi size. This system allows for a lighter overall setup which is great. My hub, sprocket and bolts come in at approx 140g from memory which is insanely light, but still very strong. So it's win win!

I'm right in thinking that frame is over 2 years old now? Looks really nice by the way.

Nice bike porn.

How often did you use this frame? Many hooks, wedges?

Beautiful, well thought out.Something I would love to aspire to owning.

Is it the camera angle or my end of the week tired eyes. On the birds eye pic of the rear brake the slaves look to be offset.

Lovely bike, ride one myself, can't fault it! Seeing this makes me want to spend more money pimping mine

The bike has done plenty of riding in the 2 years I've owned it. The frames seem super tough so well happy with that.

I think the camera lens is slightly fish eyed which you can notice in few pics.

Wonder how many people will be ditching the racing line lever blades and getting a Trialtech jobbie. They do look good

*if the bb was lower ;)

Seriously though, that to me is the benchmark bike, light but not fragile, not toooo extreme geo, front disc so it can be ridden quietly and pimped out tot he max!

So much for not liking curved tubes on bikes, Ali, eh?

I have said before that I don't mind a wee curve by the headtube, it's when you get bikes like Montys and Neons that just look really horrible.

Needs matching hoses to really finish it off but it's probably not possible, really nice bike.
