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,
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.
