Frame from £2499.00
We are launching a very special limited edition Enigma frame. Only 25 will be made, all bespoke and very unique. The frame is being made to mark my 25th anniversary as a frame builder. All those years ago I was the youngest builder in the World to become Reynolds 753 approved and that tube set was legendary, of course you can't buy 753 anymore we've had 25 sets made for this very special frame. 753 was the tube set of choice for professionals and those that just had to have the best, used to win countless Tours De France by riders like Bernard Hinault.
You will be able to choose the lugs, BB shell, fork crown and dropouts and these will all be stainless steel and mirror polished to choice. Mark's signature is added to the top tube in 3D mirror polished stainless steel too. Custom paintwork and colours are all part of the package. To make this even more memorable Mark will spend one day with each customer and build their frame while they watch, this will be photographed too. Each and every frame will have it's own exclusive book printed too, featuring photography from the build.

MANGANESE-MOLY heat-treated steel:
The 753 tube set was the first heat-treated tube set in the race bicycle industry, based on the same alloy as 531. Used mainly in lugged and fillet-brazed framesets, Reynolds implemented a Certification procedure for builders who wished to use the tubing, as it helped builders understand the requirement to avoid overheating the thin wall tubes. Silver-brazing is used for the fabrication of frames, due to the low melting point, so that 753 tubing was not annealed inadvertently.
