New Open UP in Green & A No Messing About Spec!

published by bktr on 20/01/2018 11:32:00


Open announced their 2 new colourways at the back end of 2017 having run the orange and brown for the last couple of years.  This is the new green colourway which looks soooooo much better built as a bike then it does hung as a frame on the wall, and your other option is electric blue (we’ve another custom on this colour for you next month!).

The owner of this bike is something of a racing machine hanging out with some big names in the industry and this is going to sit alongside plenty of other fancy bikes.  Purchased with 2 wheelsets; one for gravel, one for road, Chris loved the clean lines, versatility and exclusiveness of the brand.


Kitted out with the latest tech from Shimano Di2 and featuring a Quarq power meter this bike will give any budding or advancing racer all the tech they could need to know.  Martin our mechanic at Ings has made a sterling effort with the cables custom routed and wrapped where necessary, and manufacturing his own parts where they were needed.  This has produced an exceptionally clean looking bike that will withstand the abuse it’s going to suffer and it’ll hold up to the harshest of conditions worldwide.


We would like to take the opportunity to thank Chris for his patience in waiting forever for new the Shimano Ultegra Di2 hydro levers and we hope to see you on some podiums with the bike soon!
