Your perfect introduction to serious road cycling. The Longcliffe 4.0 offers a carbon fibre fork built onto a lightweight aluminium 7005 frameset. The Longcliffe series offers race performance and the perfect basis for training, fitness and commuting with comfort at the forefront of our minds. With slightly shorter top tubes and longer head tubes the Longcliffe range is ideal for any endurance ride.
Aluminium is considered the most versatile of materials for a cyclist however this is only applicable if the appropriate geometry and material is applied, not to mention the best available equipment ensemble. We take care not to neglect the most important fundamentals of a bike. The frame and wheelset should always be the priority for any rider purchasing a complete bicycle package. This is why on our entire Forme Road range we use AL7005 grade of tubing to our own custom geometry all handcrafted by Kinesis . This is partnered by the best available wheelsets for the price.
Gear selection: The Longcliffe 4.0 features a Compact Chainset and wide ratio gear selections to suit the needs of the vast majority of riders without having to resort to a triple chainset.
Mudguard clearance: Suitable mudguard clearance and long reach Brake Calipers are found on each model to ensure maximum versatility.

My first road bike in 36 years - how they've changed! A lot lighter than my hybrid & so much easier to ride. I enjoyed cycling before but it's miles better now! Can't wait to use it more.
