Hello all,I have recently replaced my old frame with a new Bespoke Curtis one along with a few other components and thought I would share it with you.

I use the bike mainly to keep fit around the surrounding towns and cycles tracks in my area and as a general excuse not to drive when the weathers nice.All the components have been transferred from my old Sanderson Soloist frame to the Curtis frame built my Gary Woodhouse and final brazing by Brian Curtis at Curtis bikes.
The frame is a combination of Reynolds 853 Maintubes and Reynolds 725 stays.

Total weight for the build is 7.760KG

Thankyou both very much.

I'm very pleased with the frame and would definitely recommend Curtis Bikes to anyone looking for a Custom built Steel Frame.

They're even producing 29er Hardtails too which look absolutely beautiful.

Looks nice. I'd say put some knobbly tires on it a thrash it on single track.
