Description

Frameset: The Holdsworth Strada is built for cyclists who've refined what they expect from a bike over decades of riding and thousands of hours in the saddle. You're looking for a daily driver with a lively feel, a spring in its step and a comfortable position so you can soak up the miles in total comfort. Choosing to own a Holdsworth Strada isn't an impulse purchase, it's the culmination of a lifetime of cycling and knowing the value of a job done right.

The Strada's oversized headtube is the foundation of its precise handling. A moderate amount of fork trail keeps the handling responsive, but never twitchy, even when descending at speed. Elegantly sculpted chainstays and hooded dropouts combine with pencil thin seat stays to deliver a lively feel on the road. Capable of transferring all your pedalling effort straight to the back tyre the Strada still soaks up all the lumps and bumps in the way that only the very finest steel frame can.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra 8000 groupset. Shimano have worked to improved the efficiency of the shifting, improved brake feel and delivers a smoother working, better-looking groupset that's simply worth every penny.

A FSA Gossamer Pro chainset combines with the new Ultegra 8000 11-32t 11-speed cassette to give an excellent gear spread, close enough for fast road work but still including a bailout gear for tackling those ultra steep climbs. If you'd prefer to roll on the full Ultegra 8000 groupset check out our easy upgrade options after you've selected your frame size and colour.

Ultegra 8000 moves to polymer coated gear cables for the slickest possible shifts. revised lever ergonomics have delivered a sweeter gear shift feel and the slightly larger downshift paddle is easier to hit with gloved hands. Inline cable adjusters are a thing of the past with the new levers containing Allen key adjustable cable pre-tensioning.

The biggest change is out back where Shimano has integrated their Shadow Derailleur design from their Dura Ace and off-road groupsets. Shadow geometry places the rear mech further under the cassette, giving slicker shifts, protecting from crash damage and allowing for larger cassettes for enhanced gear ratios. The front mech gets a new cage and pivot design to help it accommodate the wider gear ratios and trend towards wider tyre sizes.

If you've ridden Ultegra before you know how much care and attention Shimano put into it. It's their best selling groupset and offers the best mix of price/performance. This new version is no exception it's simply superb.

Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 900, 700c clincher wheelset. Fulcrum wheelsets excel at delivering serious value for money and their Racing 900 model is no different. Built with black anodized, stainless steel spokes, CNC machined hubs fitted with precision cartridge bearings, and all laced to shallow profile alloy rims with a machined braking surface this is a quality wheelset. A Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible freehub makes this a versatile wheelset for most types of road cycling. Weighing in around 1800g they're right on the money for a do-it-all wheelset. Tough enough to sprint, light enough to climb on and a pleasure to ride all day, the Fulcrum Racing 900 wheelset will be with you mile after mile.

Finishing kit: Italian accessory masters Selcof provide the lightweight, oversized 31.8mm stem and handlebar as well as the 6061-T6 alloy seatpost that supports the San Marco saddle, offering exceptional comfort and performance for all-round riding conditions. A bike as elegant as the Holdsworth Competition deserves nothing but the best and that's exactly what this Italian themed finishing kit offers, grace and beauty.
