Alexis’ S&S Travel Bike

This was Alexis’ second bike from us here at Saffron and has been specifically made as his need to travel for work has recently increased. The bike had to be light and stiff, like his race bike, so we chose the Columbus Spirit tubeset. Alexis wanted to keep the look of the bike quite classic so round tubes were used throughout and the colour choice fits in with this. The fork is the Grammy model from Columbus, which combines the classic look of curved legs with a modern 1.5″ bottom bearing for stiffness. The S&S couplers allow the frame to be split into 2 pieces and to further reduce the complication of this process he opted to use a 1×11 groupset from Sram – one less cable to deal with!

This bike is built for getting to the mountains easily, and climbing when you get there. Tubular wheels and a wide ratio cassette, combined with the low overall bike weight mean that it really is a climbers dream.
