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 !!
