TransAm Race Bike

This impressive bike was built by Rob of English Cycles to tackle the Trans Am Bike Race, an ultra tough endurance 4.200 miles (6.800 km) bike race across America from west to east, in a transcontinental adventure of epic proportions. The racers rely solely on their fitness, mental fortitude, and meticulously chosen gear. There are no follow vehicles, no support teams, and no outside assistance, you are under your own power. To learn more about this ultra-light road touring bike that frame builder Rob English has built for his attempt at the race, and for more information on how to order your complete bike or frame, head over to his website.
