Tim was looking for a fast, quick handling bike that matched his fit geometry perfectly. Having had the opportunity to meet FiftyOne’s founder, Aidan Duff, a few years ago, he knew that he wanted to properly test FiftyOne, and see what they have to offer.
After a couple of introductory conversations and fittings to optimize Tim’s position, we had long discussions about paint finishing ideas and componentry. The core idea behind the project was simple: Tim was looking for a light, fun bike to climb mountains in Europe, but also comfortable and stable enough for a multi-day trip if needed. The FiftyOne team rose wonderfully to this challenge.
