    Love seeing bikes like these. Real bikes (of the bunch). Real material (steel!). Investment heavy on the frameset with everything else as required to do the job. Well, steel does the job also more than adequately. Only cookie cutter stuff is a second hand crankset. Chapeau!

    Field dropouts?
    That wishbone though, I am usually not a fan at all but that one is clean

    “off the peg” ?

      Stock, built in standard size ranges with no cutomising

    Wow, beautiful ride!! But I simply cannot comprehend why someone would go through the entire process of building a beautiful bespoke steel bike and then mount Gatorskin tires on it ?? The non-pneumatic tires on a tricycle have a better ride quality then Gatorskins. Completely cancels out the reason to ride steel for the feel. Oye…

    • JJ

      some people like what they like and due to being creatures of habit wont change. Its not a problem though, you still get to enjoy the tyres that you like to use :)

    • Just not true. Gatorskins are perfect commuter or in this case winter tires. They are bullet proof and they have to be for UK winters and all that shit on the road.

      • George Darroch

        GP4000S2’s are practically bulletproof (they’re fine for Footscray Rd in winter), and grip extremely well even in the wet. They’re within 1-2w of almost any race tyre. And they’re cheap.

        • Stewie Griffin

          Well, they’re not exactly cheap, but the duration you get out of conti gp4000’s is amazing. I ride and race with them for about 6000 to 8000 km’s, and I ride them hard, before I change them and at that stage, they’re only a little square, they’re not even fully worn out yet. I only punctured twice in 20 000 km, both by nails on the road. I even run them with worn sidewalls and they won’t budge, gravel roads are no issue either

          • Dubonab1ke

            UK winter riding, even if its dry, often means country lanes with plenty gravel/debis and thorns from hedgerow – and then in the town/city the usual glass/nails/tacks etc – i can totally understand why gatorskin is preferred. Agree wtth comments above, its not really set up for winter, other than crisp cold dry days!!

      • Yemble

        It’s really not a winter bike though: micro clearances, no fenders, rear brake mounted down in the filth. As JJ said though, habits eh. I have friends who still run 23mm tires though their bikes will take 25mm or 28 just fine. Swear by em.

        Lovely bike nonetheless.

    What type of stem, bar and seatpost are used? I always thought 3T doesn’t make stems with a double bolt clamp anymore.

  • David Tuttle

    I could not agree more with having a builder you know it makes the bike that much more personal

  • Eric Hancock

    This is beautiful. Love the seatstay, but very tight clearance there.

  • Allez Rouleur

    The seat tube junction is beautiful, made even nicer by the lack of a caliper!
