Ted’s aero road disc

Ten years ago I built Ted’s first bike, and he has been riding it ever since! But he decided he wanted a modern version to join it. The frame has a custom butted and ovalised integrated seatmast with matching adjustable cap. There is a rear wheel cut out that will clear up to a 32mm tire. Dropped seatstays complete the contemporary look, with a subtle bend to clear the brake caliper.

Keeping the all-steel theme of the previous bike, I built Ted a tapered steerer, aero-bladed thru-axle disc fork, with a custom stem. These are paired to the frame with an EC headset that allow for the oversize lower bearing without an oversize headtube. The Paragon Machine Works handlebar clamp was modified to accept an Enve stem-mount computer bracket.

There is a T47 BB that allows for full internal routing of the rear hydraulic hose and Di2 wires. And an extra bottle mount on the rear of the seatmast.

We worked with Princeton Carbon Works to create a wheelset painted to match – all the incredible paint (will get some sunshine photos later to show how much the prismatic pops!) was applied by Colorworks. Final weight is 18.5lbs.
