An English piece of art

Added: Sun Mar 16 2014

Rob English did not exhibit at the 2014 Handmade Bicycle Show but we spotted this beautiful crafted bicycle of his in the Campagnolo booth and snagged it for detailed pics.

Love at first sight is a good way to describe this Rob English project.



We were told this fork is a Whisky product and it comes with a thru-axle.



A simple logo and leaves no doubt who built this machine.



The ultra thin seatstays come together as a wishbone.



Another angle of these very small seatstays.



The cockpit with the the Campagnolo 11-speed control units.



The 3T bars and stem are very subtle.



The front end of the English frame has beautiful lines.



The cables disappear into the headtube.



Up close with the seat cluster of this frame.



Industry Nine hubs front and back with TRP disc brakes.



Campagnolo Super Record EPS shifting.



A Selle Italia SLR saddle on an Enve Composites post.



Enve Composites wheels with Continental Competition tires.
