Halcrow Trad Road
Columbus Spirit and Life main tubes with Columbus short-taper chainstays to produce a particularly light steel frame at 1.4 kg.
The frame was built to replace an overly large Giant Defy, so the majority of the build kit was carried over: the challenge was, how nice a bike can we build with the parts to hand?
The horizon paint job is harder than it looks, but we think it's worth the hours spent masking.
An etched bee tops off the build.
