My Custom Wyndymilla Fixed Crit Race Bike
I’m really pleased to be racing fixed gear crits this year for a brand new team, Wyndymilla Hype Energy. Initially, I was unable to join a team and always raced solo as I’m sponsored by ASSOS (year round) and was therefore unable to join any team that didn’t happen to also be sponsored by the brand. Between you and I, this meant I had to pass up some absolutely dreamy offers over the last couple of years.
Happily, ASSOS have come on board to support the Wyndymilla Hype Energy team in it’s entirety meaning myself, Keira McVitty and a super secret special guest (yet to be announced) will be all wearing custom ASSOS skinsuits aboard our custom Wyndymilla bikes this season. Along with Hype Energy, the team are also sponsored by Zipp, which has worked out pretty nicely for me as the makers of some of the finest wheels in the world have decided to support me outside of the team too. It means they’ll be kitting out my new custom road bike with full SRAM and Zipp kit. More on that later.
But for now, I present to you my carbon fixed crit bike.
This carbon beauty has been made to my exact measurements and is totally unique, being made of individually cut lengths of carbon with different lay ups. The incredible paint job (based on the Hype Energy’s Cherry Punch flavour) is the work of Haisie and the Robots and Wyndymilla Paintshop, who have also customised the Zipp 404 wheels and Giro Empire shoes. Check out the full build below:
