There is nothing else like a 14R. Let me know if you need any help with anything. Also let me know when you are picking it up!! I know it will be very soon! Stoked that you are stoked on the 14R ;)

Interesting bike!
What is the ride like comparing to a aluminum or steel track bike?
Im interested in the low pro 14r and would love to see more pics of it fully built up!
By the way what is the weight of the frame-only?

andyellis says:

Compared to an Aluminum frame... This is way stiffer. The 14R is Steel, but it does not flex like a steel frame or an Aluminum frame for that matter! This is what an Aluminum frame looks like when it flexes at the BB:

More photos of the 14R Low Pro will be around soon. We have some news coming soon!! I don't know the weight yet...

No way, this look amazing. I was thinking about going aluminum and upgrading my frame. But i'm thinking this might be the upgrade i'm looking for. So eager for more info on when this thing comes out.

Really love it overall, and fact that you ride a lot push to push it makes it a lot cooler

andyellis says:

Thanks. I believe that a steel frame set should last you forever... even if you crash it, bend it in half, you can still have that frame repaired. Unlike Carbon or Aluminum.

THAT'S steel? Sweet looking ride, but I'm kinda doubting this...

andyellis says:

It is steel! I guarantee it. This bike is well documented :) I have just put up a few more images, check them out and you will see it is really Reynolds 853 Steel!

wow, look at that. how thick are the main tubes? that thing must be a tank, how else could you draw steel tubing in that size and still maintain compressive strength?

SEAMLESS AIR-HARDENING HEAT-TREATED STEEL

The benefits of air-hardening steels are particularly noticeable in the weld area where, unlike conventional steel alloys, strength can actually increase after cooling in air immediately after welding. 853 is heat-treated to give high strength and damage resistance, and the steel properties allow thin walls to be used, so that lower weight but fatigue-resistant structures can be made.

Why it works:

UTS: 1250-1400 MPa, density 7.78 gm/cc

The chemistry includes carbon, manganese, chrome, molybdenum, silicon, copper.

The interaction between the alloys result in a fine grain structure that forms with air-cooling without the traditional "quenching" (fast cooling in water or oil) process. High strength from bainitic phase steel after a series of cold-working operations.

Heat-treatment to the 853 specification raises the yield strength for the entire tube, increasing dent and impact resistance.

Reynolds offer a design option from 2011 - 853 DZB for Double Zone butted tubes which are particularly suitable for ATB and 29er frames to reduce or eliminate the gussets normally required to pass the stringent EN fatigue testing standards.

Got this off the Reynolds website...
http://reynoldstechnology.biz/our_mater...

These Aero tubes are custom drawn for 14 Bike Co and are not available on the market to anyone. We have a good relationship with Reynolds, which is why 95% of the frames built at 14 Bike Co are made from Reynolds Steel.

Also there is a picture somewhere on the right which indicates the weight of the bike fully built up... 8.64kg if I remember rightly. any other questions, let me know :)
