Review Submission by Ray Farris - June 2017


The GF Ti disc is an awesome frame. It might just have better ride quality than my Mercedes E series coupe! Seriously, it rides beautifully, silky smooth, stable, but with good performance and very good stiffness through the bottom bracket.
I could whinge a bit about weight, but only a wee bit and if it were made lighter it probably wouldn't have its capacity for touring or as much stiffness... so I won't complain.
As a comparison, I far prefer the ride of the GF Ti to a Specialized Roubaix I have been riding recently. The Roubaix was a bit more responsive, call it whippy or edgie, which I did not like for my purposes and the ride was much harder and less pleasing than the GF Ti.
The GF Ti kicks the Roubaix's arse, IMHO. And... I love having disc brakes. No way I'm going back to calipers.

Two comments for those doing DIY assembly: note that this bike needs quick release wheels and that if you go with 160mm rotors for the rear brake you will need a special mount for Shimano brakes (I suggest ordering a 140mm rotor for the rear).

Build: Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon disc wheels with 25mm Conti clincers, Shimano ultegra drivetrain and disc brakes, T3 carbon bar with T3 alloy stem, alloy seatpost and Selle saddle.



Review Submission by Mike Kammerdiener - May 2017


I agree completely with the numerous reviews that this frameset is an excellent all rounder and do almost anything bike.
It's super comfortable for longs days in the saddle as well. So much so that I rarely ride my super light carbon bike any more. This one is just so much fun.
I wanted something that could do light touring and also could manage forest trails and gravel. I didn't want a full on gravel bike because I often have to ride roads for an hour to get to the forest so wanted something to do it all.
I have not been disappointed and am now considering selling my dedicated road bike because it sees so little use.
The GF Ti DISC is definitely my go to bike now.



Cycling Plus



The original GF Ti endurance bike impressed us, and having made the switch to disc brakes it’s now even better.
The fork features huge clearances, though the geometry is actually more suited to speed than cruising.
Comfort is excellent on poor surfaces, while the head-tube and fork remain resolute ….
… for sportives, Audax events or light touring – or even as an occasional gravel grinder – this disc-braked Kinesis is a superb and very versatile machine.

"....It has the classic ride quality of a titanium machine, but with a turn of speed to ensure it’s a thoroughly engaging partner...."
"...Now it’s also future-proofed in this disc version the GF Ti Disc makes a strong case for being the last bike you’ll have to buy for a while."
