Titanium fans and handbuilt aficionados rejoice! You have seen the previews… here is the finished product! Both Nicole and Boyd have designed custom Ti bikes from our Canadian friends at T-Lab Bikes, to reflect their “Dream Builds”. Boyd, on a road bike, but Nicole, surprised us with an amazing build to get off the beaten path and hit the gravel trails! We chose to partner with T-lab because we knew they could build the right frame to reflect Boyd and Nicole's love for cycling and their attention to detail. These beauties are incredible both in appearance and ride quality. T-lab hand builds their frames in in Canada using careful manipulation of cold worked grade 9 (3AL-2.5V) titanium. The proprietary tube shaping provides 30% more stiffness while giving excellent ride quality and smoothness. Both bikes feature the newest from Boyd Cycling, T-lab, and Shimano, along with a host of other goodies.
We cannot forget Boyd’s T-Lab R3 Boyd Cycling Special Edition. You can look at this bike and say a few things to yourself, but first to mind is that color combo. The Silver/Black mix up is breathtaking! We have had a few people come up when we were out on test rides in amazement of how well the colors around the bike flow together. Aesthetically, it’s hard to beat. We one-upped ourselves though, sitting this bike on a set of Boyd Carbon Disc 55’s with Terminator Tears logos. That name gets us every time mentioned, but the liquid metal-look, combined with the color combo makes this bike look like a show bike. Looks are not the only thing this bike carries, it also carries the makeup for an extremely fast bike. IRC Formula 1s, 700x28c - tubeless, tell us Boyd means business each and every ride. The strength and comfort of the cold worked, handbuilt, Ti frame take any of Boyd’s abuse he can dish out. R8000 Ultegra Di2 and a 11-28 cassette give this guy range for any climb or sprint desired. We do not need to say much more on this bike for you to know, this “Dream Build” is awesome! Check the spec chart below.
We are running a poll on our social media
