George’s Stainless Steel Road Bike
Do you want to go fast?
George’s Stainless Steel Road Bike is a prototype stainless steel 1146. We wanted to test the durability and ride feel of stainless and we have so far found the results to be very promising.
The components include; Shimano Ultegra, Enve fork, Chris King headset, Zipp cockpit, and prototype TRU carbon wheels with Continental Ultra Gatorskin tires. The Shimano Ultegra components are known for quality and performance. The Zipp parts are light and stiff and provide the perfect control for this bike. The TRU carbon wheels are super light and responsive. The Gatorskins provide excellent puncture protection for a small weight penalty.
George finds this bike perfect for a quick rip through the city, but has also found it comfortable for riding 100+ km trips. He’s got us stoked on working more with stainless steel in the future!
