"This is a lightweight, durable Reynolds 725 frame, classic looks, can take full-length mudguards Is a sublime ride with handling qualities that has made it a true riders' favorite. A genuine four-season UK road bike.

More relaxed geometry versus a conventional road race frame (longer wheelbase, slacker head tube angle & more fork offset), the Equilibrium is a favorite for all riders. It's no slouch, the surefooted geometry, spritely steel frame and fork work wonders to smooth out and tame the worst of the UK broken roads and will have you descending and cornering like you're on rails."

Latest Build Project below. This can be built for you. I will be test riding this bike over the next few weeks.

 

 

Just a frame?

Tifosi XS Frame built up with mixed parts for test purposes

Tifosi frame bought from Gocycleshop. Built up here in Ringmer in the bikerepairbox with parts sourced by myself to get a mid-range value ride that will glide through the toughest of British winters. Budget components cannot last the harsh winters out there.

 

Named after Italy’s most passionate racing fans, British brand Tifosi has earned a reputation for reliable, good quality frames. Indeed, the CK7  is a winter-ready frame that could keep you riding at race speed throughout the colder months. But, equally happy throughout the year.
 
The CK7 has been critically acclaimed over a number of years and has consistently been one of the best-selling winter models within the UK. Featuring comfort geometry, this is a quick and reliable bike that can be ridden all year round for training, commuting or sportives.
 

The CK Columbus double-butted 7005 alloy frame is top notch — on the sporty side of stiff. This directness is complemented by the aero profiling of the down tube.

The fork and rear stays have room for mudguards and can take tyres up to 28mm. The fork is made from Tifosi’s own carbon and increases the comfort at the front end, adding to the zippy speed afforded by the rest of the bike.

 

The CK7 is constructed from double-butted 7005 Aluminium, which has been finished in an anti-corrosion primer, plus two coats of paint for added durability.

 

My initial findings having received this frame last week.


This truly is a beautifully put together frame with a 10/10 top finish. I am very impressed with the paintwork, jointing, and the Headset and Bottom bracket shells have been carefully prepared ready for chosen components. Dropouts are clean and finished well.

 

Comment from a cycling weekly road tester. " This bike gave one of the best first ride impressions I’ve ever experienced (beaten only by a race machine costing over five times as much)."

Would you like this bike built to your specifications?

 
I will be giving this bike a full test ride during the next few weeks and will report back. But, first impressions from a rider who usually goes for handbuilt steel is that I am happily surprised at the feel and response of this new build. I loved how it felt smooth over the bumpy roads with little vibration coming through the handlebars and saddle. Descending is positive and feels very safe at speeds. It climbs really well without the feeling of rear drag that some Sportive/Audax frames give.
 
The components although not exactly a classic collection of parts suiting the lovely frame framework well.

My 9/10 Verdict.

 

Several months into the 'not so nice' weather and I am putting some miles on the Tifosi. I am really happy with this choice of bike. Its perfect for long winter rides and has ample room for adding wider tyres if needed. But, its still going to be a great all year round bike due to its wonderful handling and quality.

Handling:

Smooth and very comfortable. Not super quick but very solid and sure going down hill over terrible road surfaces.

The feeling of almost a dampening feel as you ride on 25mm tyres with the Carbon fork and seatpost.

Frame:

Holding out really well . Paintwork still perfect, washes well and seems to shed mud and dirt very easly. Good clearance allows for a set of solid quite mudguards to be used.

Riding buzz:

Yep it has that, as well as looking really rather cool, the ride is so dependable without the often twitchy issues on some roads that you just want to push it faster and faster espeically down hill. Load up with a carbon seat post and it becomes a fast  armchair ride.

1960"s Peugeot Frame re sprayed and ready to build

Custom Build sourcing parts of the period wherever possible.

 

The 1960's Re-born into a nice Single Speed Steed.

Simple lines, simple looks. Is it simple to build? Not always.

 

Requirements for this project to look smart, classic and function as we would like but with a modern twist needs consideration. Parts to source takes time. This 1960's Peugeot frame has specific tube dimensions unlike many other bikes built in its time.

The seatpost tube size is unique, the Headset is threaded and of 1" but if you want a classic look not all headsets will fit the look.

 

I like to try and get original parts or close matches. Sourcing parts typically can take longer than the actual build but are all part of the fun.

 

This bike hopefully will give my client plenty of fun this summer.

 

This customer wanted a more traditional look to his Singlespeed Charge. We swapped out the seat, brakes, and handlebars and the result was amazing. Really looked classy.
