simon's road machine

simon's road bike turned out really nice! it is built from columbus life tubes and is super light especially considering its a steel frame with a 61cm seat tube. i couldn't be happier with the finished article, i built the frame around 3T carbon forks, FSA carbon handlebar/stem combo, a sram 'red' group and royce hubs built to DT Swiss PR415's rims. this will be one sweet racing bike that simon will be heading out to the alps on this summer.

thanks to nigel and his team for building the bike.

  1. Carbon forks on a steel frame is always hard to get used to...but rad bike none the less!

    Seat tube art for sure.

  2. That is a thing of pure beauty. What is the integrated stem/handlebar? is it cinelli?
