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
We got our hands on a few upcoming products from Ashima back at Interbike. Namely, these floating rotors (white inner) which weigh in at a feathery 105 grams. Check out this other set of rotors (gold inner) geared towards cyclocross, with a new mud shedding design. These come in at only 95grams per rotor. Keep … Read More
The foundation for this build is a pair of Parlee Z5SLi’s, sturdy and stiff but still a comfortable frameset. There are a few small differences in the build list to better fit each rider, tubulars here and clinchers there. Two high performance machines, hidden under a tasteful matte black color scheme. Both bikes are built … Read More

There’s a depth to the paint that you can only see in direct sunlight, the photographs really don’t do it justice. Contrasting colors and finishes don’t usually work together as well as they do here, matte carbon and leather combined … Read More

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

We’ve received our first shipment of ENVE 25 clinchers. The rims weigh in slightly over 400 grams at an average of 406. The brake track and sidewall are thick and look up to the task of dissipating heat during long descents. The ERD is slightly smaller at 601mm and shows the ground up redesign ENVE … Read More
I would have to say that these wheels turned out amazing. It’s hard to capture the effect of the spokes on camera but they’re a great effect once spun up. The depth of the rim is going to be a contrast for the small tubed English aero road bike that they’re going on.
