Elegantly sculpted, triple butted frame tubes are hand cut, mitred and carefully TIG welded to produce a lightweight, steel road frame of uncompromising performance and beauty. With a handmade 320 gram, carbon fibre fork the Holdsworth Competition is as light as it fast. The Competition brings the Holdsworth story right up to date, blending cutting edge construction and materials with time honoured handmade craftsmanship.

The Holdsworth Competition is full of carefully considered design touches. An oversized tapered headtube helps deliver responsive, pin-point precise steering. accepts a narrow 27.2mm seat post to help keep the weight down. A standard BSA threaded bottom bracket ensures you'll never suffer from BB squeaks like all those press-fit frames. Carefully sculpted and shaped frame tubes are designed to deliver a responsive, agile ride. It's a bike that's suitable for flat-out competitive efforts as well as long days in the saddle.

As with all Holdsworth cycles the Competition is beautifully hand-crafted through each stage of production. Every tube is cut and mitred by hand before being TIG welded into place. Individual inspection controls all stages. The result is a newly made frame of the same quality, finish and heritage that you would expect from any vintage Holdsworth but with a performance on the road that is unmistakably modern.

What they have to say

Cyclist Magazine July 2017 - 8/10

The history and heritage of Holdsworth brought bang up to date in a great-value package. if you're after a bike with some heritage to go with its modern components and performance, it could be the ideal match.

Cycling Plus / Bike Radar - June 2015 - 4.5/5 (Reviewed under the previous name of the Professional Corsa)

A modern retro bike in both design and ride quality. If thats what youre looking for in your retro kicks wed highly recommend it. Think of the Holdsworth as a state of the art steel race bike wearing a vintage suit and youll be on the right track.

    Comfortable, very fast, stiff. If you need more than this bike, you're a knob.

    This is a lovely frame, bought to replace a 1998 Lemond Zurich 853 that suffered a frame crack. This built up to be a pound (450g) lighter than teh Lemond, (10 speed ultegra octalink BB and last years Ultegra Wheels) and it runs straight and true. Its a fair bit stiffer too, those oval Columbus tubes help here, and the damping from the Carbon fork is good too. The fact that it is in the Orange and Blue colours I used to lust after in teh 197o's as a small boy staring through Geoffrey Butlers Window in South End Croydon is a real bonus.

    Handles great, compliant ride, wish it was a little lighter(Lg - 1850gm frame, 2155 w/fork), but I love the ride and it just feels fast.
