650B Titanium frame sample back from builders.

August 28, 2013

Late last year I experimented with frame design. I tried to create something that was just how i like it. Now I don't possess the tools and knowhow to build the frame myself so seeking and using an overseas builder was a nice exercise in frame design to production. Im not against using local talent for this process, but if we ever decide to commit to CC frames we need to know certain quantities can be delivered at a consistent build quality for a realistic agreed price.

Well it has come back and is almost ready to build up. Firstly, at a glance it looks stunning! The tube intersections and welds are very neat. (As neat as any of the 3 Lynskey's I have personally owned, and as tidy as any of the many Moots who's owners I have the pleasure of riding with. A few communication hick-ups caused a couple of changes but then again, this is a sample.
Cant wait to see how it rides. SV

Once that air has been let out, they are comfy. On the rough bitumen roads I smiled and wondered how I have ridden the kilometres I have without these tyres or wheel size. There was no jarring or discomfort felt in the hands through the handlebars. By the end of the series I had no issues ie: numb hands or fingers A lot can be said for the bike (Curve Cycling GXR – Kevin of Steel) and setup/posture as well. The tyres provided a comfortable ride but not so comfortable as to give you the feeling of being delicate. Instead they give you a feeling of confidence and reliability.

Friend of Curve, Ali Jones, took Kevin of Steel for a solo spin down the centre of Tasmania. What she found was not picture perfect national parks, but small towns, warm conversations, and a blissful, tired satisfaction brought on by long summer days mastering gravel climbs and descents.
