We've sent frames all over the world now, but this is the first to end up in Romania Thanks to Vlad for sending this photo of his bike and some great feedback on how it rides. "I've logged about 1000km since the build and it rides great. The fit is good and the frame feels firm, springy and quick in corners. The Reynolds steel frame it replaced was sluggish and it dampened the road too much, now...

It's always a pleasure to receive emails from happy customers. As a small brand, and one that operates exclusively online, we appreciate that it can feel like a risk to buy without having had your hands on a frame yourself. As I often tell our prospective customers - we offer free returns on orders from the UK, but we hardly ever get them back. This morning I opened an email with a first ride...

On the short ride I have just done I could feel there is a greater transfer of power and just the right amount of stiffness to get...

Some carbon forks are labelled as specifically for an external (or non-intergrated) headset, such as a the Columbus Minimal...
