Yorkvelo - Chris' 931 Road Bike

Reynolds 931 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."

Build details are:

  • 931 Reynolds Frame
  • Planet X Pro Carbon Fork
  • Shimano Ultegra Groupset
  • Fizik Antares Saddle
  • Fizik Cyrano Bars
  • Chris King Headset
  • Thomson Stem and Seatpost
  • Swiss Side Gotthard Wheelset

Chris was an absolute gent while waiting for his pre-ordered frame to arrive, so a big thank you for that and also for the build photos. If I'm ever in York on a weekend morning I will look you up for a quick blast into the Howardian Hills.
