Rhod's 953 Road Bike

Here's a few quick snaps of Rhod's new Reynolds 953 frame built up with a Campag Record Group. The Fizik Cryano R1 stem and seatpost look particularly sleek alongside the deep section Mavic Cosmic Carbone rims. Exceptional work Rhod. Thank you very much for the photos.

Yorkvelo - Chris' 931 Road Bike

York cyclist Chris Gargett is British Cycling qualified, a SkyRide Leader and a cycling writer - it's fair to say he knows a thing or two about bikes. This is his new Reynolds 931 frame built up with an Ultegra group and Fizik & Thompson finishing kit. Chris also keeps the minimal aesthetic with a Planet X carbon fork in matt black with no logos (for just £99.00). There's an obligatory Chris King headset too. "Rides like a dream. Just on about 8kg I think... light enough anyway! Geometry is tall enough to ride a quick 50-75 miler without any discomfort and low enough to get into a decent TT position, which pretty much covers my riding needs. Don't think I'll need to buy another frame ever again."

If I'm ever in York on a weekend morning I will look you up for a quick blast into the Howardian Hills.
