No22 Reactor

Well I've finally gotten it built up, after receiving the frame on Christmas Eve. The plan was to build for May but life got in the way a bit..

Frameset is a No22 Reactor with custom geo (54cm frame, bit taller headtube, and some other minor changes to account for my long legs and shorter torso). This is their top line race frame which is Ti with a carbon seattube and some crazy butting and shaping on all the tubes, plus massive 1" chainstays.

Riding it is incredible: smooth ride in the saddle with just the right amount of road feel for me, telepathic handling, and when you put the pedals down it just flys.

Build comes in around 15.7 with cages and pedals and has:
-Red22 Group
-Bontrager Aeolus 3 wheels w/ Vittoria Corsa Graphenes
-Parlee carbon Bar and Stem
-Fabric ALM Saddle
-Look Keo Blade Ti pedals
-Arundel cages

Perfect build in every way - very nicely done !!!

I passed on buying a used Reactor a month or so back (one of the few times I've exhibited restraint...), but they are definitely on my list for having one built up new at some point. I'm interested to hear what you think of the ride with that carbon seat-tube and how you get on with it as a whole.

Congrats!!

Really nice. I have a set of those wheels, too, and they're excellent all-rounders. Beautiful bike — all business!

Nicely done and echoing what Clean39T said about perfect build. Also interested to know what the long term impression is on the carbon seat tube.

Looks the business. I've seen them in person and can attest to the build quality of these framesets. Congratulations

The folks at No. 22 are super talented, and that bike is a stunning example of their work. If you got that from Cyclesport you must not be too far from me—would love to see that in person!

Nicely done. I've got a No22 cx bike and can attest to its bad-assedness. The build quality is top notch as well.

Knocked this build out of the park! These guys make great looking bikes and I love the Parlee stem+bars on it. The only thing I would change is debadging the wheels if possible
