THE FRAME & FORKS
The frame and forks are hand built in the UK by the country’s top frame builders. The frame is fillet brazed using Reynolds 853 tubing with Reynolds 725 stays. The fork blades are also 853 specifically designed for disc brakes. Whisky carbon forks are also an option.
The frames are fillet brazed which means the the tubes are joined without using lugs or welding. We use a brass brazing rod to create a small mound around the joint called the “fillet.” This is then finished to create a smooth joint between the tubes.
The tube diameters and thicknesses ensure a smooth ride as well as high strength and durability.
As with all of our bikes, the Stanforth Conway has a heat treated steerer for extra strength. It has bosses for two bottle cages, mudguards and front and rear racks. The rear dropouts with integrated disc mount is machined and manufactured by Paragon Machine Works. The rear spacing is 135mm. Clearance is for 700 x 35c with guards or 700 x 43c without
The frame is finished with a double powder coat in a choice of Bahama Gold or Ash Green.
We have standard sizes which you can see by clicking on the Geometry or Sizing buttons below. We can also customise the frame geometry as all our frames are made to order.
For heavier riders we can tweak the tube thicknesses, please get in touch if this is of interest.
