This week it’s Luis’ FiftyOne Assassin Black Ops in the spotlight.

Luis is a Greenwich newcomer, having recently moved to the area from Florida. He came to us with a desire for versatility, wanting a gravel bike that would allow him to join our Saturday gravel rides and freely explore the local tracks that we’re fortunate to have in the area.

03 Body 1

When it comes to being versatile, they don’t come much capable than FiftyOne’s Assassin and the frame captured Luis’ attention almost instantly, a bike that truly does it all, and does so with killer instincts.

In the words of FiftyOne, this bike is a cold-blooded slayer of trails. Behind the covert aesthetic, a quiet menace exists that can go where you want and act how you choose. The adjustable geometry adapts the handling to your specific theatre of operation and load-out, whether you want to race, explore, tour or shred. Drop off the grid with a bike-packing set-up, run reconnaissance on new trails, or go loud and rip up rougher terrain than you ever thought a gravel bike could handle – the mission is yours to choose.

What sold the idea of the Assassin to Luis was the new "Black Ops" colourway; the stealthy, clean and elegant approach was something he fell in love with. The Black Ops edition only has a clear paint coat over raw carbon, something FiftyOne did initially to check frames throughout development after rides and showcase the craftsmanship. Due to the popularity of this, they decided to make it an option that customers could choose!

10 End

Not only does it have amazing features, this bike also stood up to rigorous testing by the guys at the shop throughout last year. Abraham used the same model at Unbound and completed 200 gravel miles with no mechanical issues at all. The bike is truly ready to provide you with the best ride you can have on a gravel road.

Thanks Luis for this build!
