Finding a cycling jacket to keep you dry during the rainy season isn't hard. If all you wanted was to simply stay dry, you could wrap yourself in Tyvek and hit the trails. However, if you want to stay dry, have unrestricted movement of your arms and torso as you ride and look somewhat stylish, the objective is a little more challenging. The Endura Flyte Jacket combines the best technology in breathable waterproof fabric combined with a lightweight anatomic fit. This hard-shell all-weather jacket will keep you dry in the most adverse conditions without weighing you down. The Flyte Jacket is composed of three-layer PTFE fabric. The most breathable waterproof membrane currently on the market, PTFE works by weaving the fabric in a lattice pattern, allowing air to easily circulate without allowing moisture penetration. This 12,000mm waterproof and 28,0000g breathable ratings remain even after multiple machine washes. Anatomic panels throughout the jacket provide a precise fit and each seam is welded so there is no traditional stitching to allow leaks. Three-layer stretch panels cover each shoulder so that the jacket doesn't tug at your shoulders as you reach for the bars. A full zipper finishes mid neck and Velcro keeps the zipper panel securely closed. A drawcord at the nape of the neck allows a custom fit and keeps any water from trickling inside. The sleeve is gusseted toward the cuff, allowing easy maneuverability around gloves. To tighten the fit, simply snug the Velcro tabs around the wrist. A laser cut pocket in the chest contains a tethered glasses wipe and large rear pocket keeps all stowables secure and dry. The drop-tail hem provides ample coverage in the rear and is fully adjustable by means of an internal drawcord. The Endura Flyte Jacket is available in Black and Red in five sizes from Small through XX-Large. Both colors employ reflective flush inset panels in the front and rear for complete 360-degree reflectivity.

Saw this frame in the e-shop today (Chinese market, eh), looks very good, carbon stays, but afaik Flyte has ceased operation in 2007, also didn't find this particular frame in any archive catalog. Maybe this is some chinese fake stuff... but the shop has very good rating indeed.

I've been on 29ers for the last two years, but I had a 26" Flyte Celsius 6 Degree frame (defunct frame builder - previously Airbourne) I never was able to sell and a bunch of spare parts ... so I built this up. It's been a fun change of pace, single speed and rigid, but I need to get more miles on ... Read More »
I'm an integrated headset away from having it done. I stopped by the [URL="http://trekstoremadison.com/index.cfm"]TBS east[/URL] the other night to get a seat collar and see about headsets. I wasn't unnerved when the guy in the service department said the dealer he'd previously worked for had exper ... Read More »
After a victorious eBay I have a new Flyte Celcius 9 in the house. when I said new I mean new. The dropouts still have paint on them. This frame has never been built as a whole bike.
I know Flyte is history. But they've had to have made more than a handful of these. Anyone have one?

I've eBay'd a Flyte Celcius 9 for use as a spare bike. I looked at all the posts dating back to 2005 and have a question about the integrated headset. Specifically, what options or models of headsets are compatible with the frame? I've never owned a bike that has an integrated headset so I'd like to ... Read More »
