Bishop Bikes: Curtis’ Road Jun 27, 2014

I love how even the simplest Bishop road bike has so much attention to detail. Seriously, look at that lug thinning! See more of Curtis’ road at the Bishop Flickr.

    the frame details, the lug work, the paint, the wonderful blue chris king group, all beautiful. the rest of the bike details, not so interesting. i do really love the curved lug-crowned fork though. i see far too many custom frame builds that throw on an enve carbon fork and it just looks sloppy and ‘cheap’ to my eye. (even if it is a good fork, or if the owner requested it) but bishop builds always have beautifully crafted forks. i hope, when the day comes that i trade in my old peugeot prestige (make fun of me if you want, its a top notch bike) that its for a custom build with this much attention to detail. i seriously love that paint.

      Those forks probably take longer to make that the frame.

        i don’t know anything about frame building, but I’m inclined to believe thats true. i do really love seeing a beautifully crafted fork with a classic style. a steel framed bike just looks strange without one.

          yea agreed, carbon forks on a lugged frame looks goofy

    This is absolutly the cleanest looking steel bike I have seen in quite some time. Wow!

    This guy does such nice work. It always amazes me the level of detail he goes to; brazing brass onto the lugs to fine tune the radii on the transitions. So sweet.
