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!
"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!"
"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."
"Honestly these are great (custom orthotics). My feet feel totally balanced and stable and I‘m not searching for the pedal when I want to push it. They’ve made a massive difference.”"

"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"
