Thank you very much to Alex Hawker for his nice compliments.  Good luck for your return to cycling.  We'll see you at the top of the col!


"The bike is really beautiful, I had to send multiple images as they were too large to be sent all together. The bike is really special as it was a real custom build with oversize top tube and carbon around the bottom bracket to allow press fit bearings and to get maximum suitability for me as I was rather large (127KG), having ridden the bike to help my fitness I am  today down to 101KG, and by next summer I expect to be 86KG. The problem with my weight happened when I broke my ACL anterior cruciate Ligament in my left knee, In a skiing accident 2 years ago and I could not move for a long time so my weight went up.

Anyway Cycling has been my way back to fitness and my Cyfac has been the inspiration, it’s such an amazing bike that I love to be out riding it, it is so smooth to ride its incredible. My personal big challenge for next year is to take the bike to the French Alps and do the Col D’iseran above Val d’isere. It is a super long climb so I had better make sure I lose the weight.

The bike is so great I have just bought another Cyfac Nerv DS2 for my wife, so maybe we will do that climb together."
