    Default English Cycles / Rob English

    I know Rob's frames have been discussed a far bit on the Salon but I can't find a thread dedicated to his frames (though that may because it is early morning here and my brain has broken).

    However, I just got an email from him saying my frame is finished with some teaser photos before he sends it off to the proper photographer. I should be collecting this bike on a business trip to Hong Kong next month and giving it a ride around the Island. I cannot wait.

    On the components, I went a bit stupid and spec'd Dura-ace 9000 Di2 with BR-R785 discs for complete indulgence. Aside from looking forward to being able to stop in Asian monsoons I am also super impressed by how clean it leaves the bike.

    From the pictures i've got I'm mightily impressed by Rob (and I can throw nothing but praise for the whole process with him).

    Just saw some pics and a write-up Rob loaded onto his site and FB for a his & hers pair of road bikes. Stunning work.


    I've always liked his stay-work.


    This fork configuration is intriguing. Rob said he half-miters the fork blade and brazes it onto the steerer. Love the idea.


    Glad to see he's back into production.

    Both those bikes are unreal. Good to see Rob building again. That custom stem is a work of art!

    He is so bloody good. I have another frame in the queue with him and have delaying spec'invited it. I think it now may be the time. Want to see what he can do for a tourer! I'm tempted to do an internal hub so it can fly etc with ease.

    I'm up in his queue. I'm very excited and Rob has proven very easy and accessable to work with. Mine will be similar to his own personal race machine which he named "Blue Tina" with custom stem.
