Faye’s stainless steel disc roadbike

Faye’s stainless steel disc roadbike is a kind of multi discipline bike. She can run from 25mm to 32mm tyres. The idea behind this was to run 25mm when racing in triathlons then to have the ability to 32mm for the rougher roads around Somerset and Dublin

The brief was quite simple, ride characteristics: stable while descending, Comfort on the straight and light for the climbs. The function and form of the finishing kit was not to be compromised.  The aesthetic needed to be clean,vibrant
For the paint we used white as the base colour with sky blue fading into it. To give it vibrance we though over a coat of pearl. This reaaaly worked well with the exposed sections of stainless steel.
We dropped the BB a to give stability and the comfortability that she was after. The tube set was a mix of Columbus XCR tubes for durability and the lightness of the frame.
The finishing kit, including the fork which is Enve. We used a T47 bottom bracket as it was imperative that the overall finish of the bike was clean and uncluttered from cables or hydraulic hoses. We placed a guided internal routing for the hydraulic hose, running this through the down tube and bottom bracket, into the chain stay, and up and out at the brake calliper. Pairing this with
Shimano Di2 made this a very smooth looking machine.
Faye’s roadbike now makes up a pair in there household. check out her husbands build here
Faymous on the top tube is a nod to a future tasty drop….
