Xmas Wish List From Condor

condor4

Coming to London isn’t all work. I am here to speak at the CAT Conference tomorrow and managed to sneak in an hour at lunch today to get over to the Condor shop. They have just refurbished the shop (which looks great) and decked out their windows in all things white for Xmas. The window had a couple of white Leggero prototypes ridden by the Rapha Condor team and the British champion this summer, which looked stunning. Also inside the shop was a black prototype of the frame the team will ride next year with their additional new sponsor Paul Smith. It has a slightly different frame design with “split” back stays and internal cable routing, but is otherwise mostly the same, if not a little heavier than this years. They also had some beautiful paint details of the Paul Smith “stripe” design on the inner surfaces of the forks and rear stays, again really stunning up close. The new Leggero will weigh in around a 11oo gram a frame – which while not super light is built for the British style crit racing – pure power transfer. But the reality is you could do a lighter build that will still get you a super light bike. Looking good for 2010.
