This bike - developed by our all-female design team - was tested and given the thumbs up by Elise Delzenne at the Tour of Flanders, the Ardéchoise and the Etape du Tour.~
Its aluminium frame gives you the perfect balance of comfort and light weight that you need to perform. This bike has got your back no matter the gradient or distance.
assembling your road bike
Seat posts can sometimes creak during rides. This is generally due to the seat post going too long without being greased. Remove the seat post, apply some carbon grease to the post, then return it to your preferred setting.
To set your saddle correctly, it's important to tighten your seat post properly. If it's not tight enough, your saddle could drop mid-ride. On the other hand, if you tighten it too much, you might crush your seat post and therefore damage your bike.
The best way of tightening your seat post is to use a torque wrench. The recommended torque is between 4 and 6 newton-metres.
The tyre pressure is something to check regularly on your road bike. Tyre traction is particularly important when turning.
To minimise the risk of a tyre puncture, and therefore of a crash, inflate your tyres to between 6 and 8 bar. A general rule of thumb is to take your weight and divide it by 10. So if you weigh 70 kg, inflate your tyres to 7 bar.
