Titanium and steel specialists Enigma are releasing a limited edition frame to mark the 25th year of framebuilding by their designer, Mark Reilly.
The Mark Reilly 25th anniversary frame and fork will use a Reynolds 753 a tubeset. There's a special reason why, and it's because all those years ago Mark was the youngest builder in the world to become Reynolds 753 approved. It's a tubeset with real pedigree; Bernard Hinault was among those who raced to countless victories on a frame made of 753.
You can't buy the tubeset any more however, but pulling some strings with Reynolds paid off. Mark has secured 25 tubesets to mark the occasion. You can't put a price on that sort of exclusivity. Well, you can: £2,499. That gets you a frame, fork and Chris King headset.
The lucky few will be able to customise their frame with a choice of stainless steel or mirror polished lugs, bottom bracket shells, fork crown and dropouts, as well as a choice of paint colours. A final flourish is the addition of Mark's signature, added to the top tube in 3D mirror polished stainless steel.
To make this frame even more memorable for potential customers, Mark will spend one day with each customer and build their frame while they watch. It will be photographed too and each and every frame will have their own exclusive book printed, featuring photography from the build.
