Relics from the shed

Fuquay


Ready for the snow

As sub-zero temperatures embrace the country with constant severe weather warnings and widespread snowfall, many people resort to extreme measures to make the commute into work.

And here’s a good example. It was ridden into the office today by roadcyclinguk.com editor Richard Hallett. It’s a classic dating way back to 1997, and is a bike that doesn’t see much use around the year apart from when cycling a road bike would just be too dangerous on treacherous roads.

The frame was made by Greg Fuquay, a legendary frame builder from the 90s, and features a steel frame with a rigid fork and 1996 Shimano XTR eight speed groupset. On the wheels are shod a pair of Continental Explorer Supersonics tyres, ideal for cutting through the city slush.
