Saffron Frameworks Spitfire Gravel Crusher

Saffron Frameworks produce some of the finest custom built bikes in the UK and Dave’s Spitfire Gravel Crusher is a perfect example of their capabilities. Designed for a commute over a mixed terrain of road, mud and gravel it’s capable of taking 32c tyres with guards. Fitted with SRAM Force 1x with an 11-42t cassette it meets the current trend of all around fully capable bikes exactly. The integrated seat post or ISP as they are known has helped keep the geometry sprightly and steeper than you’d expect while also allowing a huge setback to suit the rider. The Spitfire inspired paintwork is just brilliant. We’ve seen a few Spitfire bikes like this Parlee appearing lately but we love this Saffron Frameworks Spitfire.
