Neil Pryde Bura SL – bike test RIDE 68

Neil Pryde Bura SL – bike test RIDE 68

“Only five years after its first foray into the  bicycle market, Neil Pryde now has a full gamut of road machines in its complement, encompassing all from a TT bike right through to a more relaxed granfondo-style frame,” writes Shane Lovejoy about the fourth of the five bikes on test in RIDE #68 (on sale now). “At 768 grams for the frame the Bura SL is the lightweight climber in the Neil Pryde bunch…”

“The Bura is one of those bikes that sneaks up and surprises you. Once the tyre choice had been rectified and a suitable route with the right mix of hills, descents and the odd punchy flat was chosen, this bike had a chance to shine. The measure of a frame with this kind of neutral handling is how well those characteristics hold up when pushed to the limit. During descents, composure was unshaken and the bike consistent; this was especially evident when hooking into tight corners at speed.”

Here you can find out online extras for the first Neil Pryde bike test in RIDE Cycling Review.

  • So, @nathanpeterhaas wears the green jersey in stage 3. But only as caretaker. 
Points classification is led by Caleb with Peter Sagan ranked second. 
But, a relatively recent rule change means that world or national champions can opt out of wearing a classification jersey... if THEY are a caretaker (ie. not leader). Clear?
  • Good to see @calebewan back@in@the #TDU leader’s jersey. 
Hear our interview with him on the TDU @soundcloud station.
