Steve saw the Donhou Rapha Continental build that was exhibited at the 2012 Bespoked Bristol show and decided that that was the perfect bike for his needs… almost.
To make the build his own he also wanted a custom rack and paint job. The frame is built from Reynolds 853 Pro Team with Donhou disc/tour dropouts and the rack is built from 4130 steel with the carbon slats to finish, matching perfectly with the Wound Up fork. There’s a really solid build kit completing the bike with a SRAM Force group set, Avid BB7 SL brake callipers, and Chris King and Thomson components to finish.
Steve’s a bit of a chocoholic and the paint job (yep, its all paint) takes inspiration from some chocolate that him and his girlfriend fell in love with when they first met.
This is one really beautiful, really functional build.
