Prompt D927 Steel Frame

I’ve just finished the build of my steel Prompt D927. The bike was finished with a Dura Ace 7800 groupset and Deda components. 

The frame rides superbly.  The ride is much less harsh than carbon and thus is suited to longer rides. I plan to take the bike round Italy and Spain next spring.

The added weight off the bike is not noticable perhaps due to the increased comfort. I even managed to set a pb up Villard Reculas on its maiden voyage.  The frame is responsive out of the saddle and very solid going downhill.  Having ridden the bike a few times, I’m starting to wonder what all the hype is about carbon!

Ella and I beat the rain this morning and rode out to Allemont on the new PROMPT D926 road hire bikes. We have 3 of these full carbon road bikes for summer 2013 in sizes 50, 54 and a gigantic 60 cm frames. The frames boast full integrated cable routing and provide a similar super smooth ride to our D211 road bike.As is the tradition here the D926 is named after a local climb or road. In this case it is the beautiful Col de la Croix de Fer.
