Brothers Richard and Mark commissioned builds each for 2018 Open UP Gravel Plus bikes. They never even argued about the colour! Both bikes show common themes and individual project variation. Everyone who has an Open raves about the sense of adventure these beautiful bikes offer. 80% of our Open builds use 1x11 and 60% take two sets of wheels - generally 650bx21.MTB and 700x32 road/cross. The ability to have a bike with a multiple personality with a 15 second wheel change is truly addictive. The original Open UP is now much copied but never bettered. It is an idea and a bike that has spawned a whole way of riding. Last year Jules raced his UP three ways in six months - road-race, cyclo-x and MTB race!
"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
"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."
"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 highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."
"The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."
