|Other details: I have here an Orbit time trials racing bike, handbuilt and brazed in England, the frame and forks are made using Reynolds 531 competition tubes, lugged and brazed in the Joe Breeze classic Breezer design, fisrt designed as an early suspension mountain bike frame (a winning downhill design in the early 1990's), these early innovative designs were soon out dated by the shocks that we still have today, but this design was picked up by some of the road bike manufacturers (Orbit being one) as it is a comfortable rigid ride with a flexibility, and a lovely ride it is too!
This has a short wheelbase ideal for time trials, and with the Campagnolo components and early Titanium bar saddle, this was a quality bike in its day.
This is another one of my bikes and not for sale, but please email me with or for any info, and if you wish? any offers, as I may be persuaded.
