Like carbon fiber? Yeah, we do too. Most panels on the standard MSTR are hand-laid, robotically-trimmed, carbon fiber painstakingly painted for a “showroom” look. We were recently approached to build this special machine…and the customer seemed pretty happy with the result. Here is a link to more pix.
The Brembo brakes are just the right side of fierce, the Sargent saddle feels promisingly comfy with loads of room to shuffle about, and the riding position is surprisingly upright. Because of the semi-sporty look of the bike I was expecting a semi-sporty crouch, but it actually can’t be far off a GS riding position.– John Westlake, Bike Magazine, Nov.’16
