I’ve long wanted to build a full stainless lugged road bike but it wasn’t until recently that I felt the stainless tubes available would give the ride I want my bikes to have. This changed when Reynolds started offering new stays and blades in their 953 stainless alloy that are stiff enough to give the bikes the proper ‘jump’ I feel my bikes should have.
I’m building two full stainless test bikes to see if I want to expand the product range with a new JKS variant and I look forward to seeing these on the road shining in the sun.
Here are a few shots of a full stainless JKS X in process – finished shots as soon as it’s done.
