RCUK Bikes Nathan Boschma's Kinesis Racelight RC

I moved back to the UK in October 2005 from Australia. Having not raced for 5 years I bought a new road bike to get me back in the scene and have decided to race again this season. So I decided to build a new bike with the specs I wanted whilst also trying to keep the costs down (moving countries costs the bomb). I had heard very good reports about the Kinesis frames so decided on the Racelight RC. It’s light enough, quite stiff, handles very well, the ride is compliant and the workmanship is of top quality. Let’s just say I’ve been very impressed by it so far and always look forward to riding it. Oh, and it only cost £730 to build all in.
