Curve GXR – Werner

Once again another superb Curve GXR titanium custom bike we made for Werner. For the wheels we used the silent Onyx Vesper rear hub and SON Dynamo in front laced to Beast GR25 carbon rims made in Germany. Tufo Thundero tires offer puncture protection while still being fast and offering a lot of grip. For stem and cockpit we choose ENVE carbon parts. Groupset is a SRAM AXS Rival / Eagle Mullet that offers a wide range in every situation. A White Industries headset is a nice addition to a high end bike like this. Supernova lights allow long rides in the dark! SILCA Nastro handlebar tape an Fizik Vento Argo saddle finish the bike nicely.

Genesis Croix De Fer 853 – Arne

For Arne we built this masterpiece : A beautiful Genesis Croix De Fer 853 (yes, with Reynolds 852 tubing) frameset was the basis for this versatile and fast gravel and long-touring bike. Wheels built with Chris King hub rear and SON dynamo front laced (with Sapim D-Light/Race mix) to rare and beautiful White Industries G25A rims (can we call them NOS already?). Chris King headset and Thomson stem / seatpost are a perfect match for a high end machine like this. An ergonomic Zipp SL-70 ERGO handelbar and Thomson bar tape finish up the cockpit nicely! Electronic SRAM AXS Rival / Eagle Mullet drivetrain keeps shifting smooth. SON Edelux headlamp and a well hidden B+M Mü taillight make sure you are visible in every condition.

Brother Cycles Mehteh – Julius

We wish everyone a happy new year and start the new year with a bike from last years archive. One of the last Brother Cycles Mehteh builds inold colourway was build with Brother steel gravel fork for use with Pelago Commuter front rack. Julius wanted a highly versatile rig with a focus on reliable parts. That why we choose Gevenalle 1×12 shifters combined with SRAM GX Eagle rear derailleur for this one. Semi hydraulic Juin Tech brakes deliver stopage power in every situation. Wheels where build 27,5“ for more comfort and offroad capability: SON dynamo front and Erase MTB hub rear laced to Halo Vapour rims make it a light but unbeatable wheelset, while Teravail cannoball tyres deliver comfort and grip. Low drop and flared Ritchey Venture Max handlebar for control in every situation.

Curve GXR Kevin – Fabian

With Fabian we planed a very special project based on the Curve Cycling GXR titanium frameset that actually shows how versatile it is. The setup includes two wheelsets. 1st: fast with carbon Duke World Runner 50 SLS2 rims and Teravail Rampart tyres, 2nd: offroad with Newmen Evolution SL A.30 rims with wide Maxxis Ikon tyres. Both sets of rims combined with Erase rear hub and dynamo in front for use with lights. For shifting Shimano GRX 810 combined with Garbaruk cage and cassette. In front a Rotor 2INpower Powermeter crank and matching Q-Ring. Orange seatclamp and headset from Hope Tech are a perfect match to the orange Garabruk details. PRO carbon seatpost, Discover stem and handlbar with ENVE bar finish the bike nicely!
