I never properly presented my Crumpton SL here so here it is, Nick deserves all the exposure.... Awesome bike, I have been riding it for more than a year now. Just great. Sold my C50 as it was just collecting dust.

The paint was the first one of this kind he did "half panels". It has since been adopted on his new corsa.

SL frame with split seat stays
Edge 1.0 fork
Super record Ti group
Ritchey WCS carbon seatpots, bar and stem, painted to match
CK headset
Arundel Mandible cages
Bora U2 or Hyperon U2 wheels
Veloflex tubulars
Busyman covered carbon aliante
Busyman leather tape

Not sure of the exact weight, but light enough for my 1m96 84kg. Frame was 980g.

Really nice bike.
Most bikes look much better with deep wheels, but I like Your Crumptom much more with Hyperon wheels.

Both of these wheelsets are very hard to beat. Not the lightest but the best IMO.

Yes a very beautiful bike for sure. A proper hard riding beast with either set of wheels. Very well done indeed!

Sweeeeeeet!!!
Built pretty much the way I'd do it too :-)

If ever I was going to pay big money again (at least to me) , Nick would be my only call...

Gorgeous, very hot ride. My vote is for the deeper wheelset, although I'd prefer slightly less intrusive logos...

Le vélo est plus joli avec les Hyperons.
