Condor fixed wheel road bike, Bill Hurlow


This Condor features WBH No.1 lugs and was probably built by Bill Hurlow in 1959. Seat tube length: 22-1/2 inches (c-to-c); top tube: 22-1/2; bracket height: 10-1/2. It was resprayed dark green metallic by Argos of Bristol. Components are: T.A. cranks and pedals, Campag Nuovo Record head set bearing and front brake caliper, Tektro brake lever, Cinelli stem, Brooks tape, bar courtesy of Rund Ums Rad Mannheim, Gilles Berthoud Galibier saddle, Miche seat pin; wheels: Phil hi-flange (rear flip-flop), Ghisallo wooden rims (28 holes, front/rear), DT Swiss spokes, Conti Giro tires. I wouldn't expect to win any ribbons for historical accuracy at Le Cirque, but I'd be satisfied with an honorable mention for "bitchin' optics!"


















































The Editor wishes to thank all the people (you know who you are) who helped make this bike a reality.
