FEATURE I BIKE REVIEW KINESIS T2 - Cycling World reviews the Kinesis T2 training bike


s the nights start to draw in and the temperature plummets to freezing, a general malaise usually starts to overwhelm but not so far this autumn/ winter. This is due to my introduction to the gleaming T2, a winter training bike from Kinesis. It’s renowned in the cycle club circuit for being a comfortable and dependable, which makes it the ideal bike to do all the winter miles on and burn off those calories and say farewell


A


to the indulgences of Christmas. Its appearance is simple and fuss-free which I like, the frame is hand welded from double butted 6061 series alloy tubing which provides a smooth, quick and pleasing ride. The welds are neat and the graphic finish is slightly underwhelming (embossed with a white on black logo) however I did like the sporadic addition of the vibrant red which did enhance its aesthetic appeal. The makers Kinesis are happy to promote the bike as not a high


performance race bike but a dependable great fun ride that will happily guide you through the winter months and the unpredictable weather that can bring The bike has been designed specifically with plenty of frame and fork clearance to take larger road tyres which increase the comfort and its light at 9.5kg which for a full specification everyday bike is amazing. The bike arrived without the full length mudguards fitted but once they are attached (process is extremely easy)
