- The Spirit -

A non-corporeal substance, the hub of emotions and character.
The defining feature of humanness, mediating between our body and soul
and completing us in ways we can only hope to fathom.

 

Gravel Bike, Road bike

 

We don't know too much about non-corporeal substances,
but we do know about bicycles. When we made the Curve Belgie Spirit in Steel,
it was our mission to create a bicycle that completed you as a cyclist in ways that
can't be explained but just felt right.

 KEY FEATURES

ANY ROAD – ALL DAY 
We've designed this roadie to go long! It's got plenty of room for fat tyres offering a buttery smooth road ride, or a good ol' gravel grind.  
The wheelbase is long, the BB is low, and the front is raised, so you can go go go, for hours or even days in comfort, easing neck, back and bum complaints.
 
HAND-BUILT STEEL
All frames are TIG welded by hand from a select combination of Columbus Spirit, Columbus Life with 4130 steel frame components.
 
COLUMBUS TUBING

Tubing made in Italy from Niobium steel – a light and strong material developed specifically for bicycle frames. We've chosen it for its many qualities including strength, stiffness, durability and longevity. The result is a lightweight bike with a lively ride quality that can last a lifetime.

    Development & Adventures

    The development frames have already undergone more miles of testing than most of us will cover in the next 5 years.

    Belgie Spirit Fixed Heart Perth Melbourne Cycling Adventure

    Perth to Melbourne with Fixed Heart
    Ben le Mesurier is extraordinary, a Curve mechanic and test rider, who rode from Perth to Melbourne solo to raise money and give back to the Melbourne Children’s Hospital who saved his life a decade ago. 
     
    INDY-PAC FRIENDLY LAYOUT
    Road-venture bikes must give you everything you need and nothing you don't. We've moved all bidon cages as low in the front triangle as possible allowing you to fit 2* one-litre bottles with enough space above for a frame bag. There is also a cage mount under the down tube for storing a tools & spares cannister, or more water.
    *Frame triangle storage is dependant on frame size.
    Jesse Carlsson Belgie Spirit
