Bike Profile - Neil Pryde Bura SL

The Neil Pryde Bura SL is made to climb. The super lightweight 750 gram frame delivers that golden balance of being stiff and strong in the fore-triangle and bottom bracket; yet surprisingly forgiving on the rear seatstays, to aid long ride comfort.

This season, I have two fairly mammoth climbing challenges: my #EquinoxEversting and the '5 Maratonas Challenge'. Ahead of the first of these, later this month, I wanted to share my current build set-up on the Neil Pryde Bura SL.

Bike Specification:

Neil Pryde Bura SL
The Neil Pryde Bura SL is quite possibly the best road bike I have ridden to date

The Rotor 3D crankset is fitted with a 52T oval chainring and a round 34T chainring

Bottle cages are Elite Cannibal, with a Lezyne Road Drive Mini-Pump

The groupset is a Campagnolo Record Mechanical 11spd set-up with a Chorus 12-29 Cassette

Seatpost and saddle from fi'zi:k. Light from Exposure. Saddlebag from Lezyne.

The Lizard Skins DSP Bar Tape is one of my favourites on the market today

The Mavic R SYS SLR Wheelset comes fitted with Yksion Pro Tyres

The superlight and super-smooth hub on the Mavic R-SYS Wheelset

Shimano Dura-Ace pedals

The cockpit accessories include a Bar Fly 3.0 Mount and an Exposure Trace Light

Braking is from Campagnolo Record brakes and Mavic Exalith brake pads

The Neil Pryde is built for mountains...



  1. Hi Tim, I enjoy reading your blog, would you still recommend this bike, you must have put a lot of miles on it now? Is it comfortable on logish rides,

    I am 64kg and want a light frame to build up to take to the Alps
