Beautiful Bikes at Enve’s Builders Roundup

The Enve Builders Roundup is a show of custom bikes (and Enve’s components). Among all the great bikes, here are three of our favorites (and not only because they run Rene Herse tires):

Prova from Australia brought this ultra-clean all-road bike. Combining a road bike fit with the ability to run 55 mm tires – that’s right up our alley. With our new 700C x 55 Fleecer Ridge tires, it looks ready for anything you can throw at it!

Carl Strong from Bozeman, Montana, brought this very tempting road bike. Running 700C x 32 mm Stampede Pass tires, with room for more. Nice to see how road bikes have been redefined in recent years: ‘Road’ no longer means ‘highway’!

We’ve been working with Scarab Cycles for a while. Their workshop in Colombia turns out beautiful and ultralight steel frames. The Paramo is labeled after the ecosystem in the high Andes. It’s made from Kaisei tubes and runs our Hurricane Ridge 700C x 42 mm dual-purpose knobbies. Exactly the bike I’d want for the long climbs, gravel trails and incredible descents of its home country! We’ve been promised a test bike for Bicycle Quarterly.

Which one of these three is your favorite? Let us know in the comments! And for more photos from the show, head over to Enve.

    Love that Prova. It just looks like it begs to be ridden!

    Put 32c tyres on that Scarab and I’m in. That paint is gorgeous.

      I would go with the Prova because of the 29er wheels and Fleecer Ridge Tire’s. The Enve fork with everything cage mounts and dropped chainstays are an added bonus.

    I like the Prova also. I am a big fan of simple paint jobs on bikes. Also like the 1x gearing and the ability to run 55’s.

    Prova quality has to be seen to be believed. An early Prova randonneur was in my bike sheds a few years ago – people would stop and stare.

    +1 for the Prova. I like the combination of 55 mm tires and what looks like a road chainring. But I prefer the DeSalvo paint job (which I think could be improved by confining the name to the top tube.)
