    its a client request and an experiment in what can be done with 953 tubing. Reynolds were so impressed that he’s working with them on lots of projects.

    I’m all for trying something new and diferent, and that looks extremely well made. But it isn’t half fugly. Its like someone started a cruiser-style frame, got distracted halfway, but decied to carry on regardless.

    Oh my eyes – truly fugly.

    Beauty, not imho. Device to demonstrate a range of production techniques you might like (a couple of!) in your new frame, very good.

    My week of all things bike rolls on. Yesterday I spent a very enjoyable lunchtime with Ted James, frame builder, serious rider and nice bloke . He has moved in down the road and will be fabricating in steel and ti on my doorstep! Looking forward to some rides also. Anyway this beauty was in:

    953 with some amazing tube work and forming to the steel, internal cables. Ted does his own custom headtubes also.
    reynolds/tune wheels, xx1, carbon lefty, syntace bars/stem. shade over 23lbs even with all the tubing.
