I’m sure some of you have already seen this but here is my shiny new Kumo roadbike, with awesome photos by our very own Andy “fameandspear” Rogers.
Being lucky enough to have a framebuilder for a brother, I have a tendency to try and get builds wedged into his build list and this was one of them.
I wanted a light, fast steel frame, the rest was up to him!
The frame is lugged construction from a Columbus Life tubeset except for the seat stays which are Columbus Ego which I found NOS somewhere. The geometry was created around the fit numbers that I got from a session with Steve Hogg. Lots of crazy magnets and shit but the fit is great!
Build list :
Frameset: Custom Kumo, sprayed by Sun Graphics. There is an awesome pearl green sparkle in the paint which doesn’t come up in the pictures.
I studied jewelry design and the graphics were based on a motif I used in a group of pieces.
I’m planing on riding the crap out of this guy when I get back to Sydney.
You guys do a mid week ride yeah?
The weight with the 65’s was bang on 8kg, am expecting it to be at least under 7.5kg with the new wheelset and the seatpost cut.
