Despite a not so nice day in Cumbria I decided to get some climbing in on my New Orro. Purchased for a cycling adventure in May, which takes me from Nice to Rome. Over a distance of 600miles and 60,000 meters of ascent!
Hartside, a classic climb only a short distance from the Bike Inn, allowed a good chance to stretch out the legs. For me, electronic gearing and disc brakes on a road bike being a new experience.
A wet day seemed a good opportunity to test out the bike.
I can say I am not disappointed. The Syncro shifting when climbing made for an enjoyable ascent. The bike descends fantastically, it’s responsive and a joy to ride. In fact, I am now actually looking forward to the trip.
