North East Airlight

More Airlight build photos, courtsey of Nigel in our very own Newcastle upon Tyne.

"The Airlight rides brilliantly and is super comfortable compared to my previous bike. The road just buzzes underneath the frame making it a much more enjoyable and pleasant experience. On the short ride I have just done I could feel there is a greater transfer of power and just the right amount of stiffness to get up those sharp inclines.

"I think that North East Cycleworks have built the bike up superbly and I couldn't be more pleased with their service and I personally think the bike looks superb as it has turned out just how I wanted."

While Nigel is still in the process of dialling in the perfect bar height before he commits to trimming the fork. The finished bike weighs in just over 8kg with the following spec:

  • Hunt Race Aero Wide wheels
  • Fizik Aliante R3 saddle
  • Fizik Cyrano R1 90mm stem
  • Fizik Cyrano R3 42cm handlebars
  • Fizik Carbon seatpost
  • Chris King headset
  • King bottle cage
  • Full Ultegra group set
