The Race bike

Batavus AX-Light  died in 2018 due to a broken frame.



The Batavus frame is made of Aluminum 7005 with  a criterium designed geometry and a HPD coating method. The bike has an extraordinary stiffness of 139,9 , so you really 'feel' the road.

The stem was shortened, for a better fit.

My first STI shifters, work great in fast corners.

Bought in the year 2005 , second hand.

Frame size  59 cm

Total weight 10,5 kg

Died in 2018  with more than 100.00 km on the clock , due to a broken frame at the back near the derailleur.





Broken frame ...so dismounted in 2018 !!
