Moda Intimo Reynolds 953 Steel Road Bike


Reynolds 953 takes the metallurgy rule book and throws it out of the window. With strength to weight ratio’s higher than those of 6AL titanium and a impact strength similar to armour plating this is a dream material to make a frame from.

However there is a flip side to all this strength, it’s an incredibly difficult material to work with and only a handful of people are qualified to do just that. Luckily we have found some of those people and set to work.

Taking this wonder material we designed and built a frame that keeps the classic and much loved ride characteristics of steel and yet maintains a stiff riding platform. Wrapped up in paint and polish with a LDC carbon fork this is a modern classic in every sense of the term.

Moda LDS Reynolds Steel

Load Dispersing Steel

You don’t need to do much to improve on the already fabled Reynolds material ride characteristics but we have fettled some what in the build process.

Butted main tubes reduce the overall frame weight and improve cornering characteristics and tracking, whilst re-enforcing areas of high load means you get the very best when out of the saddle or sprinting.
