As mentioned by others this is a nice looking bike. I like the small size, too, because it seems most of the bikes posted here are pretty large. If it was my bike I would look for some better looking brifters and mount them just a tad lower on the bars. I was given some Shimano brifters like these and I just can't bring myself to use the ugly things on a bike, even though I'm sure they work fine.

Wow: Anderson Bikes

What a bike Neil! This is up there with Vanilla cycles and such and I went over to Anderson's website and was blown away with more gorgeous custom jobs like your's. thank you for sharing this and also for introducing me to the builder. Cheers

love the grammo

Hate to do it, but I have to ask...

What's it weigh? I don't normally care, but I'm curious what a full steel 953/753 frame actually weighs in at.

after riding this

beautiful bike would you say all the hype about 953 is true?why did he use 725 for the forks? After reading the write up I want a Anderson.

Blades and ride

Reynolds are working on a stainless blade, but it's still in development, so the next best thing is 725.

The ride of 953 is amazing. Absolutely superb. It's comfortable, its stiff. It's just the right blend of both. I was deliberately aiming the bike at every cobbled stretch i could find locally, charged over rough tarmac and along paths and never once thought 'Uh oh, that was a bad move'! They make tanks with this stuff - and it shows!

I've had people say to me 'You should have gone with titanium' but to get the same rigidity with ti, the downtube would have to be massively oversized compared to this frames' 31.8mm diameter. I wanted a steel fork, so a frame with big fat tubes would just look dumb. 953 is everything titanium tries to be - and then some! Classic looks, cutting-edge materials.

The build quality is probably some of the finest work I've come across in a long time - and I say this as a 753 approved former framebuilder!

David Anderson is one of the few builders left who can see a project through from start to finish - from the laying out the frame drawings to finally painting the frame. I would be happy to recommend his services to anyone who wants the best.
