I’ve been riding my Goomah Bike for a few months now, and in that time we’ve become firm friends so I thought I’d introduce her to you.

Goomah Bike G733 Full Build

 

The bikes are designed and developed by the Assos Werkmanschaft, which is Assos’ core team of product testers. The brand is a partnership between the Swiss cycle clothing manufacturers and Goomah SA.

If you didn’t know that Assos actually invented the first carbon frame (back in 1976), I guess it could seem odd that a clothing company created a bike brand rather than the other way round, but once you know that it all starts to make sense.

The bikes are strictly limited in number, and available in two different models, the G731 and the G733, which I have. The G733 is the successor to the 731, so a few things have changed, for instance the seatpost which previously was integrated.

The bike is crazily light and really stiff, and feels nippy and responsive which is just the way I like ’em! The frame is asymmetrical to ‘compensate for the torsional flex that a one-sided powertrain generates under maximum force,’ and whilst I don’t know much about the physics of this, when I crank down hard she leaps forwards enthusiastically. When sprinting on the flat (not often round Devon!) she’s off like the clappers. The BB386 EVO bottom bracket and the crankset help with this feeling of power, adding torsional strength.

When it comes to aesthetics, well she looks incredible.  The soft matte black finish with the full on logo and gold detailing is far from subtle and I absolutely love the full on flashiness! Internal cable routing makes her look even better, and apparently the cabling route has been re-designed to flatten the path for smoother, faster and more precise shifting. She sure does shift smoothly, but whether that’s due to the top of the range Sram RED group set or the path of routing… well I know where my money would be.

    Congratulations on your Goomah. I have the same model too and close to the same fantastic emotions.

    She Rides Me Crazy too.

    Hello Juliet. Can you say me which is the size of your frame? Thanks for the answer and have a good ride. S.
