I’ve been space cycling now for about 10 years and it’s great! I put out insane Watts on it! Even though mine is Hi-Mod with Campy, I could see myself using this one as a spare in case of a flat tire. Space bikes have changed cycling for me permanently. I hardly ever ride my enduro fat bike anymore.
