I bought the CGR SL because I wanted to open up my riding to different terrain and that’s exactly what it does, I am now exploring new routes, off road trails, bridleways and gravel while also still being able to enjoy on road riding.
The bike looks fantastic and is a very comfortable ride. I decided to go with the 650b wheel set and larger WTB Sanderos tires for the winter and it’s had no trouble navigating boggy and wet conditions this Jan/Feb. When things start heating up I intend to swap out the wheel set for road racing season.
I did have some trouble with torque settings on the first few rides with seat post and the Level 5 carbon handlebars, so would advise in investing in a torque wrench and carbon paste. Something I’ve only just started learning about.
Was dream after the usual bike set up tweaks. The set up videos and instructions ribble provide are informative
The seat post adjustment was easy and guaranteed a straight forward facing saddle.
I’m not used to a rotary saddle clamp but after some fiddling I got the gist of how to adjust the saddle position without it all coming apart in my hands.
The ride itself was smooth and now I’m a total 40mm tyre convert. Felt the grip of the tyres this wet winter. Frame absorbs the impact on uneven surfaces. For long rides the flat standard handle bars provide comfort.
