Chris Bishop is the master at the classic road, always delivering jaw-dropping beauty with details galore. Randy’s is no exception to this rule. Fitted with Campagnolo’s classiest group, Athena 11 and coated in a deep blue paint, this one will roll the streets of time with style… See more at the Bishop Flickr.
Lugged, exceptional paint and a classic stance with modern technology propelling it onto banked roads. Henry’s road bike is a elegant example of the work Chris Bishop is capable of. See more at the Bishop Flickr!

I know we’ve been immersed in NAHBS this past week and everyone’s probably reaching their limit on amazing, custom handmade bicycles but this one needs some exposure. Chris Bishop’s latest track bike is nothing short of amazing. This Supersprint bike has Samson track ends and a clean fastback seat stay, accented by Todd Eroh’s paint. See more at the Bishop Flickr.
A Bishop road bike is a grail for many cyclists and with details like those found in Jim’s new classic road, it’s easy to see why. Check out more photos at the Bishop Flickr. I seriously love this bike!
Just… hold… still… This might hurt a bit.

This one’s a truly unique ride. PAUL cantis, Rene Herse cranks, vintage Dura Ace and a paint job that will only look better with dirt, mud and road dust caked into the nooks and crannies. Jonathan’s dirt road bike is a dream build!
See more at the Bishop Flickr. Chris, this is a fine bicycle!
What do you call a road bike with a decalleur? I dunno? Light tourer? Whatever it is, Chris Bishop’s calling it a road bike, but it’s way more than that. Head over to the Bishop Flickr to see more.
This bike is amazing – the striping on the stays!!!. Killer job, Chris!

Finishing lugs isn’t easy, yet people like Chris Bishop make it look so. Check out more photos of Seth’s road bike at the Bishop Flickr!
It’s not every day you see a disc-ready road frame built entirely from steel. Usually, the client will spec a carbon fork and a 44mm head tube. Not on this bike though. The details overfloweth at the Bishop Bikes Flickr!
… and all I can focus on is the seat tube cluster!
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.
Man, this bike has been in process since 2012. Seriously. I remembered those Courage track ends specifically. There’s a saying that all good things take time and that can certainly be applied here. Magnus’ bike is looking amazing. See more at the Bishop Flickr!

After I shot photos of Chris Bishop’s blue Drillium Revival Track Bike, a customer named Eduardo contacted him to make a similar bike, but as a singlespeed. I’d say it’s pretty damn close too. Especially the Drillium Revival cranks. See more at the Bishop Flickr.
This is why I love Chris Bishop’s work so much: he takes the time to machine and shape everything, down to the cable stops. See more of Andrew’s road at the Bishop Flickr!

The work of Chris Bishop keeps filling my Flickr feed and the latest singlespeed has enough details to let you spend a considerable amount of time drooling over it on your Saturday afternoon. Head over to the Bishop Flickr to see more!
I catch a lot of flack for saying things like “these are the best brakes” and “I’ll never ride another set of brakes again”. Rightfully so. What I’ve learned in the past is to say things like “these brakes impressed me, both in design and stopping power” and “modulation is king!”
Writing product reviews ain’t easy, especially when a company gives you their product to test out, which is not the case here. I bought these brakes because I believe in supporting the US-manufacturing economy.
EE Cycleworks is a small shop, that produces a handful of components, all of which are incredibly well-designed – from an aesthetics standing – and from what I can tell so far, are easy to service.

It’s been a long, long time since I first posted about Ben’s Columbus MS road frame. Last June, in fact. Chris and Ben both tracked down all the parts needed to build this beauty up and I gotta say, it’s one of the best road bikes I’ve seen come from Bishop. Which is saying a lot, considering my own and Michael‘s are still two stellar beauts.
Catch more of this insane road bike (if you can indeed catch it) at the Bishop Flickr!
I know this isn’t entirely all that surprising but I found this photo series that Chris Bishop posted to his Flickr very interesting. This is for a Di2 disc bike. It’s great to see new technology integrated elegantly into a traditionally-brazed steel stem but the contrast still gets me every time!
See you this weekend Chris!

So… if Chris Bishop isn’t going to NAHBS this year, who’s going to win it? I’m partially joking but Chris’ latest work is mind-boggling. Ryan’s 650b Randonneur frame is absolutely stunning and I still can’t believe how many details are packed into this bike. Head over to the Bishop Flickr to see more!
