Nong’s Minimal Stainless Road Bike

Nong came to us with a simple brief to create a bike to better her current riding. Not a racer, not a sportive rider, but a competitive club cyclist Nong wanted to improve her climbing and descending. 
The mix of Reynolds 953 and Columbus XCR made for a frame significantly lighter than that of her previous bike with the 72 degree head tube angle keeps the bike stable at high speed on the downhills.

Chris King provide all the bearing areas, with the hubs hand-built to H Plus Son rims.  Finishing kit from 3T and componentry from Shimano complete the package.

Nong is an architect and prefers a clean aesthetic so a simple tinted white was an easy choice. Colour sample swatch cards inspired the inspiration for detailing on the rear of the seatpost and inside of fork.

Nong’s been putting the miles in since completion of her new bike so keep an eye out for her (probably overtaking you on the uphill)
