Despite using the most visually disturbing background ever for their booth, No.22 Bicycle Company have proved once again that they are the masters of understated beauty. Shown above is the new Reactor frameset; featuring a more aggressive race geometry than the Great Divide and dropping a lot of weight through several design tweaks including the use of a carbon seat tube/mast.
This show bike tips the scales at 5.9lbs, which is well below UCI limits, thanks to the ee cycleworks brakes, Cannondale cranks & the bankruptcy inducing Reynolds RZR wheelset.
UK pricing is yet to be confirmed but expect to find your wallet up to 4k lighter… Oh, and if you’d like to replicate this show build you’d be looking at 5 figures… Time to sell an organ or 2 (it’ll be worth it).
We recently handed over one of our first generation No22 Great Divides to the guys at Cycling Weekly… Result? They loved it!
We were happy with the comfort, and topped off with the lightweight properties, you’re getting a great all-round road frame with plush titanium styling’
It rewards positive rider inputs, which made it an engaging ride. We felt compelled to press on, especially on the descents, with good feedback keeping us informed us to the limits of grip and the frame’s capabilities.
You get a robust and plush frameset that should last a lifetime.
