Retired professional cyclist turned triathlete Adam Hansen has recently announced he is in the process of producing a triathlon inspired bike. In a recent talk with Ride Media from his native country of Australia he discussed the details behind the bike he will make completely on his own in the Czech Republic.
“The self-designed, self-made frame will measure just 28mm wide excluding the forks, and feature custom-made wheels and derailleurs, as well as a ‘floating’ chainring that optimises chain line,” according to Cycling News.Text continues below picture
Hansen is no stranger to custom carbon fibre fabrication, as a professional cyclist he produced his own shoes for many years and now sells one of the lightest cycling shoes in the world at 95 grams.
Hansen can be seen making a pair of his ultra light cycling shoes in a recent Instagram post and gives insight to his carbon making process that will one day build a bike.
