Field X ENVE Track bike
It’s not everyday you’re asked by ENVE Composites to build something special for their show stand at the Berliner Fahrradschau. With a shared passion for absolute quality and attention to detail, it’s exactly the kind of project we love to take on. The bike we created puts Field in the company of some of the most unique, beautiful and sort after bicycle makers in the world that ENVE have chosen to promote on their show stands in the past. We jumped at the chance to make something that shows off the unique frames we build.
With a similar build to Garreth’s Single fixed, but with an ENVE carbon seat post replacing the i.s.p this super stiff frame is built for performance, it excels racing through the city or around the steep banks of the track. Materials are a mix of Reynolds 853/631 and Columbus Life, with the use of a Tandem ‘boom-tube’ as the top tube to create a super stiff and precise handling frameset. The profile of this tube requires painstaking mitering and faultless fillet brazing to produce the sculpted and seamless transitions we craft. The oversized tubes provide us with a perfect canvas to indulge ourselves with another of the vibrant paint designs we’re known for.
Built up using ENVE’s incredible carbon rims and a unique Goldtec prototype stainless hub set, the super stiff ride qualities of the frame translate through the whole bike and leave nothing but a grin on your face.
