A Kermesse is the most popular kind of amateur bicycle race in Belgium, especially in Flanders. Koen stands 1,93m tall and loves hammering long rides and climbing steep hills. With his height and weight, we decided to use large-diameter tubes – a mix of Columbus Life and Zona – to minimize the inefficiency of the pedal stroke due to bottom bracket flex. An integrated head set combined with Columbus Grammy full carbon fork keeps the front end light and stiff.
