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.
"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."
"Cyclefit provide a great personalised service that focuses on giving you exactly what you need. They are extremely knowledgable and friendly and no request/requirement is too difficult for them."

"A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"

"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"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!"
