Ruben's All-road

Ruben came to me looking for a bike suitable for all-road riding – everything from smooth tarmac to Belgian pavé. Starting out with the standard All-road bike the frame was custom built to Ruben’s size – he’s quite a tall guy so a standard build would not suit him.

The wheels on this build are something special, hand built by David Meadows at DCR Wheels in East Sussex – beautiful wheels developed specifically for the type of riding Ruben wants to do. The detail DCR go into is incredible, similar to how I look at frame building, and I’m proud to have them rolling on a Quirk bike.
