So much of a custom bike is just getting a bike that fits you. This bike is staying here in Bristol. Matt has struggled to find a bike that fits his particular body dimensions and preferences nicely, so going custom was the right route for him.
It’s a kind of classic ATB kind of bike, with those 3″ tyres, hand hammered mudguards, and Cleland-ish approach. Matt carried the components from his old bike across, making for an affordable build.
It’s kitted out for external cabling for everything, rack mounts for potential future Tour Divide dreams, and a delicate balance between standover/framebag/dropper.
It’s the simple things that do it quite often, and that’s this bike.
