Summary

Options

The Mystique has been designed to take you further than you ever thought possible. We've built this for the long haul and it's supremely equipped to carry everything that you'd need even on the longest adventure. With mounts for three bottle cages, front and rear mudguards and low-rider rack mounts it's one of the best equipped gravel bikes you can ride.

The Mystique uses the same hand lay-up carbon manufacturer process as the UCI approved Super Professional Team bike. We've not scrimped on strength, beefing up every tube junction and mounting point so you can be totally secure in tackling any terrain.

Designed to benefit from 1X groupsets the Mystique is a perfect match for SRAM's off-road components. Ready for hydraulic disk brakes and with plenty of space to take 40mm tyres,you don't have to cross continents to enjoy the Holdsworth Mystique, it's just as at home hacking around your local trails and towpaths as it is exploring the wilderness.

NOTE: Please make sure you check the size guide to order the correct size of this frame. If you are unsure please contact our Customer Service Department

Sizing Notes

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.

Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.

As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.

    Fantastic value gravel frameset, couldn't be happier. I opted for black. Came very well packaged and the frameset itself covered in protective pipe insulation and bubble wrap/plastic bag. Attention to detail even with the application of the packaging and tape amazed me. Tag with quality control details hanging off the derailleur hanger, ok so its in Chinese but it looks like someone cares ! The bag of bits was complete-all bungs, blanking plates, Di2 tube, cable grommets etc present and correct. Bought recommended headset from selcoff which arrived in box. The seat pin is carbon and again a nicely finished piece of kit. Attention to detail and finish on frameset also remarkably good. Built up with 105 calipers/levers, Ultegra discs, Dura Ace BB , GRX chainset 1x, GRX rear mech, Hunt All season gravel wheels with Panaracer gravel king tubeless/Stans gunk, FSA stem & bars, Selle Italia saddle. M540 SPDs. Orange Cinelli tape. 8.5 kg all in. Replaced all redundant frame screws with black plastic ones from Halfords (interior panel screws) . Needed the longest rear caliper Shimano screws for deep section chainstay. Excellent to ride-great fun, stiff , light, responsive but tough over rocky gravel. Only gripes are that I couldn't get the Bottom bracket cover (over the cable and rear hose-hose seamed too fat)to fit so covered with double layer of helicopter tape. Ive has some very wet rides with fords and deep puddles, rain, noticed water sloshing about in frame. Unsure portal of entry (not aforementioned bottom bracket) and came out easily through redundant front cable frame hole with blanking grommet removed and bike on side-though unsure what would don if no redundant hole through which to let water out ? Overall very pleased and as the owner of some expensive road bikes, as an inexpensive option, not sure I would really feel much difference with a frame that costs as much as my whole build. Highly recommended.

    Got this as a frameset, built it up with UDI2 and Farsports wheels and a Ritchley Bar. SKS Fenders. I use it as a foulweather bike for fall winter and spring rides, mostly on tarmac. Works very well and feels stable and fast

    I bought a Mystique frame a couple of months ago in black, size small, and I've built it up with Mechanical Ultegra with an RX rear mech and a 34 rear cassette for mixed surface rides, I've built it with Hunt Gravel wheelset, Schwalbe 35mm G-One tubeless tyres, really old (at least 20 years) XT SPD pedals and full mudguards, in this configuration it weighs in at just over 10Kgs, without pedals, guards and cages it was just under 8.5Kgs, I'm just building a better road wheelset for it which will bring the weight down to a more friendly 8Kgs, pedals and all so this bike, with a spare road specific wheelset, could be your single bike if you're looking for a do all type of bike. I love it, I haven't been on any of my far more expensive bikes since I've built it.

    To follow on from my previous review... I've been using the Mystique for about 4 months. It's certainly a conversation piece! Almost every time I take a cafe stop somebody comes up and says they had a Holdsworth years ago and admire the look of the bike. I've now fitted it with wide SKS mudguards which keep the worst of the Autumn/Winter crud off the frame. Biggest compliment? I did a hillclimb recently on it and another competitor with a 8K Pinarello Dogma came up to me and said "Wow - nice bike!" and I don't think she was being ironic!

    Received M size (54). I didn't build the bike yet, but frame looks fine - very solid and well finished. Measured weight of all parts of the set: - frame 1384 g (with all screws on the frame and mounting plate for the front derailleur) - fork 489,2 g (with untrimmed headtube) - frame accessories 45,5 g (seat post wedge, various covers for the inner cable routing) - front axle 63,6 g - rear axle 78,3 g - seat post 248,4 g I would probably replace thru axles - I don't need clamps, so this is space for a small weight saving.

    Large frame in black/orange nice stealth look. Doesnt come with headset bearings so get them at same time. Could do with provision for DI2 internal junction box, bit of a faff feeding it down seat tube. Made up with DI2 for low maintanence winter bike, running 40mm tyres and mudguards. Yes DI2 can be low maintenance, no cable stretch/jams. Solid light frame for road and gravel well impressed so far.

    First the negatives, your website is a mess, seatpost size is not specified (27.2mm), description does not tell us if it comes with a seatpost (it does), headset (not supplied), stem (not supplied), rear hanger (supplied) etc Positives, frame is fantastic, light, seems stiff in all the right places, practical with fender mounts and third bottle cage mount etc. The hardest part of the build for me was the rear brake line other than that it was a straightforward frameset to build up and it came supplied with all the necessary grommets/blanking plates, under BB cable guide. Due to work I have only ridden 30 miles on it so far but I am very impressed, absolutely love it and can now see me selling off all my other bikes and keeping this one as my jack of all trades. Can the frame accommodate 160mm discs/calipers? There seems to be minimal clearance at the rear caliper mount where the seatstay comers down. I am currently running 140mm rotors front and rear.

    I bought a Mystique frame (L) in team colours and have been very impressed with it. I wanted to build a bike for comfortable long distance riding so went for a 105 double groupset (52-34:11-32) and TRP Spyre brakes. The finish on the frame was great, it arrived on time and was well packaged. With Hunt wheels and Panaracer Gravel King 32C tyres the final build weight was very close to 8Kg. For refrence, my large frame (with the thru axle, derailleur hanger and all cage, mudguard and pannier screws) was 1500g. The fork (after trimming) was 530 including thru axle.
