Back Of Beyond Cycling
Back of Beyond Cycling is as much about local lanes and trails as it is about gravel roads some thousands of miles away. It’s about quick weekend spins and epic bike packing trips. It’s about fernweh as well as homesickness. It’s about time well spent and deliberately wasted. Based in the South Downs, we ride, write and create illustrated, hand-printed t-shirts and accessories.
We believe in you, the rider. You know why you ride, how you ride and the ride you want. You are the best person to design your bespoke custom bike. Our mission is to empower you to direct the design of your bike - tuning it to your specific needs. The end product is uniquely precision crafted by the rider, for the rider. Our process combines advanced custom engineering, technology, material and craft, to achieve the ultimate in uncompromising performance.The rider's holy grail - a frame that blends the torsional stiffness and performance of a Carbon Fibre frame with the ride comfort of a Titanium frame.

Bike Science was established in March 2010 by Andy Sexton. Andy has over twenty five years of competitive biking experience and over twenty years as a triathlete. While working at Planet X he identified the need to be able to offer accurate, professional bike fitting services to riders wishing to buy bikes without being able to try the actual bike for size first and riders wishing to optimise their riding position to increase performance, avoid injury or improve comfort. He started Bike Science with these aims in mind.

Genuine. Innovative. Original. We’ve been at it a while. Consider this comprehensive reporting of the genesis of Calfee Design and our relationship with Greg LeMond and the Tour de France, wherein was written, “In 1991, Greg LeMond was searching for a bike fast enough to keep him at the very pinnacle of professional bike racing. Craig Calfee was busy forging a quiet revolution in carbon construction. Together, they changed the face of cycling.” As the time line below will evidence, we’ve a broad body of work. Along those lines, the editorial team at Road Bike Action stated that, “There is likely no other name in the bicycle industry that has attached to it as broad and significant an arc of accomplishments as Craig Calfee.” Enjoy the complete article here. Towards further discovery of Craig Calfee and his namesake brand, you might also enjoy this radio interview that aired January, 2011 in a public radio program called the Outspoken Cyclist.

Hand Built, Silver Brazed, Quality Frames. Beautiful, classic, true to the process.
In a sometimes pre-fab, one-size-fits-all, disposable culture, what I find myself most interested in building are quality frames that will last your lifetime, using the same techniques that master builders of high end bicycles have used for ages. Because I build each frame, one at a time in my own shop, I am able to take my time with each step of the process, and put true skill and craftsmanship into every hand-built silver-brazed frame.

The story of the most famous steel tubes in the history of cycling began in 1919 when A.L. Colombo founded his steel plant with the ambition to “to do business in iron and steel and make a fair and honest profit,”. The result was the history of cycling as we know it: legendary tube sets AIR, MAX (first tube-set to break the tradition of conventional diameters and introduce concept of orientated ellipses and differentiated sections), SL, SLX, NIVACROM (EL and Genius), Altec, Starship and Spirit right up to the most 2009’s XCR, the world’s first ever tubeless stainless steel tube set which allows for the production of a steel frame competitive (and out-performing in some categories) at the highest level of the sport on all levels: weight (sub-1400g), rigidity, fatigue resistance and of course the remarkably superior handling of steel.
