Colnago_C60_Black_Parent

Colnago C60 Super Record

This is the third Colnago C60 we’ve built recently, and so far is our favourite. Personally I’m not always a fan of black on black, but in this case it works really well and is an elegant execution for black on black bikes. If this isn’t your style maybe the White on Black Colnago Italian … Read More

Festka XCr Stainless

When we discussed ideas for the relaunch of our blog, which you’re currently reading, one idea kept coming up. That idea was that while we wanted to showcase what we do here at Fair Wheel Bikes, we also wanted to show things that impress and inspire us. That idea brings us to this build from … Read More

Calfee Manta

Calfee’s Manta, first seen at Sea Otter in 2013, is a soft tail geared towards performance riders and racers. One intent of Manta’s 10mm of travel is that a rider who experiences less road vibrations fatigues less, and we all know that fatigue looses races. The other goal of a performance oriented soft tail is … Read More

Colnago C60 :: Eppur Si Muove

It’s not often we build up frames from Italy’s prestigious Colnago, yet here at the end of 2014 we’re going to build three C60 frames. This could be a sign that the oversized C60 will be able to bring Colnago back to the forefront of cycling’s boutique brands where in their prime they made frames … Read More

Continuing our posts about the Interbike builds from last September’s show, here is our 8.8lb (4040g) Crumpton SL road bike.  Our effort to show the cutting edge in light road bikes today. For us, after living with these heavily-dieted bikes for a while, our notion of cutting edge includes reliability and an adequate safety margin … Read More

Parlee's New ESX Aero Road Bike

Parlee’s new aero ESX frameset

The new Parlee ESX frame is out and more specs, including aero data, will be available in the next couple days.  For now I know that the weight will be mid 800 to mid 900 depending on sizing.  Obviously it’s going to be a bit more than the Z5 but surprisingly not as much as … Read More

Aero English Road

This build is bound to ruffle a few feathers, especially the deep section rims on a thin-tubed steel road frame. Rob English has applied his unique vision of what an aero road bike should be. Small, but complicated touches like the inverted fork/stem arrangement and integrated skewer ends reduce drag in little ways that add … Read More

Crumpton BMX, Worlds Lightest PROXL.

I imagine that quite a few people reading this have already seen this project we did for Interbike, but we figured this was a good time to complete the details on it.   Complete finished weight of the bike was just under 5.4kg, (11.89 pounds). The frame is a custom handbuilt by Nick Crumpton of Crumpton … Read More
