Think of the Indian Pacific Wheel Race, the Pan American Highway, the Transcontinental. Colibri is for ultra-long distance endurance routes, striking the balance between pace, handling, and comfort.
With clearance for up to 28mm tyres, Colibri is responsive and forgiving: a rewarding ride that eats up billiard-table smooth bitumen yet can more than handle odd sections of grit.
A comfortable climber, Colibri’s longer chainstays and disk brakes make for fast, controlled descents and confidence inspiring handling, allowing you to go further for longer at greater speeds. The ride full carbon fork with tapered steerer and headtube, giving precise cornering and increased feedback.
An all-season endurance racer, Colibri takes on all road conditions making it ideal for the Fred Whitton or the mountain climbs of the Tour de France. This is the bike for Galibier, Ventoux, Glandon, Alpe d’Huez, Bealach Na Ba, Bwlch-y-Groes, Wrynose, the list is endless.
Carbon frame and fork
Stiff, fast, agile, and extraordinarily light carbon frame.
Endurance race inspired geometry
Thin seat stays increase compliancy over the bumps, increasing comfort without sacrificing stiffness and speed.
Internal cable routing
Full internal routing means tidy cables, clean lines, and reduced potential for cable snags.
Tapered steerer and headtube gives more precise cornering and increases feedback when riding.
Clearance for 28 mm tyres
A longer wheel base promotes stability and comfort on the downhills.
Compliant and stiff, nothing matches a carbon frame in ultra-endurance racing.

You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the toptube to your crotch this will give you enough seatpost adjustment to find your optimum saddle height.

The build kits we use are tried and tested. It's stuff we know just works together. But if you want to change any part of the spec ... no matter how small ... then get in touch. Any change is no problem. Working with you to create dream bikes means we've built some pretty special bikes along the way.
You can interchange Love Mud components on this build at no additional cost. So if you want a different length of stem, a particular saddle or bar then let us know in the notes section in the checkout and we'll get in touch.
