Product Details

Magnus Magnusson, host of TV quiz Mastermind, was not British but Icelandic. So ubiquitous was his catchphrase, however, he was taken to British hearts. The line, befitting a dogged adventurer, is well met in Pearson’s I've Started So I'll Finish: a cyclocross bike with racing at its core. The unidirectional carbon frame offers unrivalled stiffness and comfort, while race-focused geometry ensures predictable, nimble handling. The ample clearance around both fork and rear triangle help cut through the harshest conditions, while a full-carbon fork completes the frameset.

The lightweight specification, clearances and handling also make this a machine for the adventurous gravel rider. A Shimano 105, 11-speed drivetrain offers a broad range of gears, and durable, hydraulic 105 brakes provide high performance in all conditions. The Fulcrum Racing 7 wheelset features Thru-Axle Hubs, and tubeless-ready rims for a stiff ride and puncture protection. Challenge Grifo Pro 32mm tyres guarantee performance and durability and the build is finished off with lightweight components.

Quick Thoughts

‘The I’ve Started so I’ll Finish was built to withstand the trials of dirt riding, whilst maintaining a certain lightweight dignity. The tough box section tubesets alongside ovalised stays were coupled to dispense that extra kick, so often needed when mid cyclocross or if you are late home.

Raced and played with, in equal measure. The feedback we receive is a general falling in love with this bike, I have one, we share emotional ups and downs, as far as we know this isn’t illegal.’
