Rory's disc road
The second Field to feature our proprietary flat mount dropout. We invest a lot of time developing frame parts at the Field Cycles Workshop, firmly believing bespoke frames should have unique parts. It’s a huge undertaking designing and manufacturing parts with countless hours spent prototyping, testing and refining - that’s why most frame builders buy off the shelf items. But this undertaking is worth the effort - both in terms of function and aesthetic, this extra endeavour is instrumental to the unique and extraordinary aesthetic we strive for at Field.
Rory wanted something timeless with a distinct flair, subtly shaped tubes from Reynolds and Columbus were selected - a tapered top tube moving from a classic round section at the seat tube to a large oval profile that blends smoothly into the oversized 44 mm i.d head tube.
Short taper Columbus Life chainstays filleted into our flat mount dropout are a superb lightweight option for disc road frames, oversized throughout their length, building in that ‘zingy’ ride quality. Custom shaped seatstays produced in house in specific dies maintain lateral stiffness but allow a degree of vertical flex, providing a super thin side profile. All finished in a subtly elaborate paint scheme, with layers of detail that reveal themselves the more you look and above all make you want to jump on and ride.
Enve finishing kit and fork match the SES 5.4 Disk wheelset, alongside Shimano Di2 all hidden away internally and hydro callipers complete this exceptional build, offering a beautifully responsive and zingy ride of steel with electronic shifting and disc brake confidence. Pro peloton tech but in a timeless package that’s uniquely Field.
