Which Kaisei tubeset do you recommend for me?
These blog posts describe the ride characteristics of bikes made from the three tubesets we offer:
- Superlight with ultra-thinwall tubes for the lightest, most flexible frame
- ‘Mule’ with a stiffer downtube and superlight top tube
- Oversize for stiffer frames
Beyond these descriptions of the subtle differences in the riding characteristics of bikes built with these tubes, we cannot recommend a particular tubeset for you. The final tubing selection for your bike is something to discuss with your builder, who will design your frame based your build, riding style, preference, and intended use of the bike.
