The frame was made out of Columbus steel tubing, triangulated and braced for stability.

A series of axle inserts allow different wheels to be used, and the camber can also be adjusted.

I just finished building up this bike – the Helios is a very adjustable aluminium frame, and with the removable seat posts and stem it also packs down very well.

For this one, I had the frame repainted, and fitted a Rohloff hub and Hope disc brakes.
