Holdsworth Competition Frameset Holdsworth Competition Frameset

Elegantly sculpted, triple butted frame tubes are hand cut, mitred and carefully TIG welded to produce a lightweight, steel road frame of uncompromising performance and beauty. With a handmade 320 gram, carbon fibre fork the Holdsworth Competition is as light as it fast. The Competition brings the Holdsworth story right up to date, blending cutting edge construction and materials with time honoured handmade craftsmanship.

The Holdsworth Competition is full of carefully considered design touches. An oversized tapered headtube helps deliver responsive, pin-point precise steering. accepts a narrow 27.2mm seat post to help keep the weight down. A standard BSA threaded bottom bracket ensures you'll never suffer from BB squeaks like all those press-fit frames. Carefully sculpted and shaped frame tubes are designed to deliver a responsive, agile ride. It's a bike that's suitable for flat-out competitive efforts as well as long days in the saddle.

As with all Holdsworth cycles the Competition is beautifully hand-crafted through each stage of production. Every tube is cut and mitred by hand before being TIG welded into place. Individual inspection controls all stages. The result is a newly made frame of the same quality, finish and heritage that you would expect from any vintage Holdsworth but with a performance on the road that is unmistakably modern.
