Stephen wanted a fast road bike with a few extras to make year round cycling safe and comfortable.
His brief was for a modern road bike with minimal aesthetic so we decided to use one of the very limited edition Columbus CENTO tubesets with discs, Di2 ports and clean lines through integrating the headset and using a carbon bar stem cockpit.
Now Stephen is TALL! and his bike is a C-C 60cm. Stephen decided to give me carte blanche on the paint so I decided to do a split colour paint scheme to make the frame appear smaller, which I think worked a treat.
We then built up the bike with some handbuilt wheels using a SON dynamo hub to give hassle free running lights. We decided on a 1x11 GRX Di2 group for ease of maintainance and simplicity whilst retaining some robustness.
The cockpit was finished off with Black Inc finishing kit and a Gebiomized saddle.
