Custom Woodrup Giro frameset in progress…

We recently decided to commission some custom framesets from Woodrup in Leeds. We’ve been stocking their frames for a little while now, but fancied having some in store that show off some of the seriously impressive workmanship from Kevin Sayles, Woodrup’s main frame builder. For this first one, we’ve specified a bi-laminate front end, which basically means the top and down tubes are brazed into a complete fillet brazed headtube and lug assembly. All the lugs are hand filed, and the downtube lug features an ‘FB’ for Fitzrovia Bicycles. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited about it. To follow will be a track frame, and possibly a belt drive ‘Chimera’ frame. Watch this space!
