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

The frame is a custom handbuilt by Nick Crumpton of Crumpton … Read More

Rootbeer Crumpton

“Rootbeer” Clear Crumpton Road

The unorthodox finish on this Crumpton really is something you have to see for yourself. There’s a depth to the paint that you can only see in direct sunlight, the photographs really don’t do it justice.

Parlee Z0, Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer

Campagnolo EPS Parlee Z0

I don’t entirely know what to say about this bike that the photos don’t already.  The build just came together nicely, and with the parts list it’s impossible to imagine that it wouldn’t.  The Parlee Z0 is the modern road frame with the right classic look to match a Record EPS groupo perfectly.  The Lightweight Meilenstein … Read More
