Bike Porn Friday: Steel is real

But so is aluminium. I know, because I bashed my head on my Brompton's handlebars earlier this week, and it still feels like I need a reset.


However, a great debate is currently taking place among Trois V about the benefits of carbon, steel forks, and the necessity or otherwise of spending a cycle2work scheme voucher. Into this cauldron of debate enters Dan Craven's (of Rapha Condor Sharp) new steed, which will be seen tomorrow in the Smithfield Nocturne. It is mostly steel. It draws on the Leggero. It doesn't really match the wheels, to my eye at least, and it looks admirable against a fine blue barn.



There's more on the comic's website.

We will also be having a club ride tomorrow: 8 am at the southern meeting point.

Take it away, Ryan:





Flotsnoo!
Trois V!

  2. It is a rather pretty looking bike. Wonder if someday, when MN has a bike2work scheme voucher, Condor would ship a pretty bike to me or will I have to pick up in London? ;)

  3. Wouldn't you rather pick it up in London?
