The ‘CL Light’ carbon road bike by Stiff Bicycles is a lightweight climbing machine
When it comes to climbing hills and peaks, it’s all about power to weight ratios. The CL light brings a stiff and lightweight frameset weighing in at only 1350g for the frame & fork while retaining a responsive comfortable ride for a superb all-rounder which will outperform the biggest of bicycle brand names.
Stiff Bicycles provide a wide range of framesets in their lineup, providing everything from this lightweight climber to endurance frames, gravel bike frames and semi-aero frameset designs.
Their website even provides a custom build feature so you can select which components and groupset you would prefer. It’s great to see manufacturers offering custom builds for their ranges, as one of the biggest disadvantages to mainstream brands is the lack of customisation at the build stage. Many are put off by lower specification wheels or finishing kit, whereas Stiff Bicycles get this right from the start allowing you to get the bike you really want without the knowledge you’re going to want to upgrade it as soon as you receive it.
