I just finished up Chris’  triathlon bike – this was another fun build: Full integrated Di2 with internal battery and micro-usb charging port. Custom English stem/bar/aerobar (800g) with adjustable/interchangeable extensions and elbow pads, complete with internal routing for the brakes and Di2 TT shifters. Rear wheel cut out with the dropouts angled back to allow for vertical dropouts (easy wheel changes) but still having the wheel close to the frame. Rear brake mounted under the chainstay with internal cable routing. English aero hubs built onto Enve 6.7 rims with custom painted spokes to match. 17lbs as shown (heavy saddle and the steerer will likely be trimmed once the bar height is confirmed).

Just some quick outside-the-shop pictures for now – studio shots to follow (brake cables have been left untrimmed as the brakes will be swapped out for blue ones shortly!). Next up is the first English ‘cross bike – construction pics of that coming soon…..
