Duncan’s road bike

Duncan’s road bike

Duncan asked me to build him a great handling bike to match his love of fast descending. And of course it also needed to be light for getting up the hill first! The frame features a mixture of True Temper and Columbus tubing, with an Enve carbon headtube insert. A custom lightweight stem is matched to the toptube angle.

With a full Campy SuperRecord group and Bora Ultra wheels, this bike was awarded second place in the Campy design contest at NAHBS 2016. The spec just deviates from Campy with the KMC chain for the red/black color scheme. Complete as shown, the bike weighs just under 16lbs.

The paint was expertly done by Colorworks, with photos by Tina Buescher.


  1. I owned a Duncan 3 speed road bike my father bought for me in the 50s. I remember clearly that it was built in England. Is this the same company? Is it still build in England? Can you email me information and costs of bringing one to Roswell, Georgia? Thanks, I’ll wait

    • Hello – no, completely unrelated! In this case the brand is English (my last name and nationality), and this particular bike was custom designed and built in Oregon for a rider named Duncan.
      Best regards, Rob.
