Bullfinch VX – copper red

This is one of the nicest bike commissions we have ever had. He just said “I trust you to build me a bike” … and even just described a custom colour. No photo to match, just a description of a garden shrub in autumn! That really shows the trust that is built between riders and Red Kite customers.

The reality is that we built a fast audax style race bike around a Bullfinch VX Reynolds 853 ProTeam chassis. It is layered up with amazing candy paint, a state of the art Campagnolo mechanical groupset and a pair of Mavic Ksyrium carbon wheels. The custom designed fit is perfect for the rider – who is basically always leathering it around the lanes whatever the weather, and the components carry summer speed on through into the winter. This is a total favourite.
