One of the doubtless most expected frames in 2012 is the Breakbrake 17 Transfer.
It is made of a Columbus Cromor tube set. The frameset includes a full aluminum fork and a headset from spike. Available colors are raw or pearl black.
This frame tributes to the old GT track frames from the 90th.
Mid of June, time had come and I could finally build up my own Breakebrake. But, haven’t even just began to install the party, I noticed, that the included headset doesn’t fit perfectly and so I decided to change it to a Cane Creek one.
The scale showed that the frame is surprisingly lightweight for a steel frame. Perfect conditions for a race machine – off for the first test ride.
Although the wheelbase is very short, the Transfer is very agile and comfortable at the same time.
The frame stand the berlin test in the next two weeks and was found as particularly suitable for the Berlin – Copenhagen Tour.
820km in six days, fixed, with such a frame – good idea? In the End I decided – YES!
Riding this frame was like riding in rails – direct, smooth, without any of the in the majority of cases feared problems.
The lesson is clear:
The guys from Breakebrake created a beautiful and aggressive but very comfortable frame. All in all – big thumps up!
