Open Cycle's flagship light weight gravel/road bike is the most popular of the range at Cyclefit. This is the first we have built with a Campagnolo Record groupset.
Building a custom bicycle is often a collaboration between us and the new owner, they have a specification in mind and we guide them on what will and won't work together, contribute in areas regarding fit and source the components and bring the whole project together, this is one such example.
There is a lot of carbon on this bike to keep the weight down including the rare Easton EC90SL cranks with down sized gravel chainrings of 30t and 46t. These are paired with the 32t Super Record cassette which gives a less than one to one gear ration for steep climbs. We provided a second pair of Hunt Adventure 650B carbon rimmed wheels with Schwalbe Thunder Burt tyres for off-road use with the same cassette ratio.
This is a do everything bike for road and off-road adventures.
"I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."
"A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."
London Dynamo Rider
"Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position.
Felt more connected and compact on the bike.
Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."
Seven Evergreen SL
"I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
"Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
