The OPEN MIN.D frameset is a great addition to the OPEN family and a relatively unique option in the current bike market in keeping with the classic round tube shape, but providing a super light, ultra comfortable ride.
This bike was specced for our client to have a true all round road bike that is fast and light for rolling hills, whilst still retaining enough for compliance for long days in the saddle. The frame is inherent comfortable owing to the seat mast and those ultra skinny seat stays, with the Roval Rapide wheels leaning back towards that performance side so the bike feels fast and snappy, and finally the Dura Ace 9270 groupset completes things with quick, precise shifting.
This build forgoes the hyper-aero integration of many modern race-focused road bikes, but what you gain is a sublime ride quality that is equally at home on short fast blasts as it is on 5 hour long epic rides.
