Hot off the press, fresh out of the kitchen, or brand spanking new. However you want to put it, today’s new build is one mightily impressive gravel bike! Built for Girona-based creative director, Nik Howe, this Legor Cicli LWTUA is inspired by the very place Nik will be riding it in – and specced according to match. But don’t take our word for it; read on what Nik has to say below and check out more photos of this dream bike.
“As a creative director, I’m constantly working with colour and colour palettes. Choosing one for yourself or your own project can be an arduous task. Particularly a bike, which needs to be bold enough to be different. But refined enough to be timeless. The inspiration came from the architectural palette so prevalent in Catalunya. You see that soft sage green and pastel pink everywhere. It’s subtle but beautifully striking. Even the olive groves you ride through give off that similar green hue. The decision to have a bike built by Legor was a much simpler choice. Handmade. Built locally in Barcelona. By a revered bike builder, with a free spirited philosophy towards life. Man after my own heart. Absolute no brainer. And who better to put it altogether than The Service Course who are at the very forefront of the gravel scene.” – Nik Howe
The bike features ENVE G27 650b wheels, Ultradynamico Cava tyres, a Chris King headset, a Shimano GRX groupset, ENVE build kit and bar tape, and Silca bottle cages. It’s going to blend in while standing out, and is sure to turn more than a few heads.
