Are the wheels tubeless ready?
Unfortunately these wheels are not tubeless ready because they are built with durability in mind where you might be hitting potholes or for riding off into the sunset where sealant top ups are not possible.
Are the tyres tubeless ready?

Not with this bike, but if you're looking to make the switch the wheelsets are able to be upgrades with a kit from some of our aftermarket suppliers on our website

Aluminium rims for durability and serviceability
Does this bike come with thru axles or QR skewers?
Some models have a through axle on the front to help with alignment to get that front brake working well with the rear having the tried and true quick release system means it's a breeze to get wheels off for those unlucky moments when you need to fix a flat tyre and you might be loaded up on a trip.
What is the weight of this bike?
When you're searching for a touring / do-it-all bike the weight might be lower down on your priorities because you're after durability and adaptability, although weighing in at around 12-13kg the Nicasio is still respectable amongst other options on the market.
What's the supplied tyre width?
When you're cruising around the city street you want your bike to be able to handle a curb or two so that's why the Nicasio features 700x37c or 700x30c tyres. Offering a bit of stability for a weekend away while still offering efficiency on the pavement.
Does this bike come with pedals?
Yes this bike does come with some commuting specific pedals to get you going but there's always the option to upgrade to a different shape of flat pedal for traction or move to a Clip-in style pedal and shoe combination

This model has a couple of mounts available for a bottle cage or another storage solution. Keeping you hydrated and allowing access to spares if needed. With additional mounts all over the frame and fork to strap on any number of portage accessories
What tyre pressure should I run?
As the tyres are larger in volume to a traditional road bike it's recommended to start softer and work you way up in pressure. So we recommend pressures in the range of 50-60psi.
Does this bike come with a power meter?
No, because these models are usually not suited to customers looking to measure their power, but it is possible to fit any number of power meters to the frame as all the frame standards are pretty "normal" for the industry.
Does this bike come with electronic shifting?
This model does not come with electronic shifting to keep value in mind and serviceability.

One of the great things about the triathlon scene is that you can almost ride on any type of bike if you'd like. So yes, this bike will easily be able to do a triathlon.
Can I fit triathlon aero bars to the handlebars?
Not Ideally, but if you are planning on doing some multi discipline riding then a set of clip-on bars would certainly open up the field of riding you can do.
Can I set this bike on the trainer?
Yes, although we recommend using a steel rear quick release axle or the axle provided with the trainer you have purchased.
Can I fit mudguards or a rear rack to this bike?
Yes, there's more than enough space to run a full size fender set, although take care with your tyre size to maintain clearance for mud shedding.
