Road Bike Party 2: The Making of – Martyn’s Custom Colnago C59 Disc

first_imgI’ve watched that quite a few times now, and am still blown away.Equally amazing and inspiring is Martyn’s positive attitude even after spending over 100 days in the hospital after falling from about 10 feet during his Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour demo at the Silverston Moto Gp Race, and consequently damaging his spine with a dislocated T9 and T10 vertebrae. The accident meant a setback to finishing Road Bike Party 2, until Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill stepped up to help finish the film. The result is history. The disc equipped C59 was fitted with custom Hope Trial Zone hydraulic disc brakes, which are essentially mountain bike levers custom machined to fit on a drop bar. Shifting duties are taken care of by way of Dura Ace Di2 Satellite shifters mounted to the tops of the bars. Otherwise, the build of the bike is with fairly stock components. For more on the build of the bike, check out Road.cc. Curious how you go about making a road bike capable of the incredible stunts pulled in Road Bike Party 2? Global Cycling Network just posted the ‘Making of’ video where Martyn’s mechanic builds up a stock Colnago C59 disc with just a few custom touches to make it trials worthy.Haven’t seen Road Bike Party 2 yet? Where have you been!? Check it out, plus images of the C59 after the break.last_img read more
