Our 2019 Bike of the Year, the OPEN WI.DE. is a regular feature in the Build Gallery. One of our favourite things about this unique frameset is its sheer versatility, and every build is a little bit different, tailored to the needs (and perfectly fitted to) each individual rider.

This SRAM Force 1x equipped build includes something a little bit different, in the shape of the Tailfin carbon rack. This minimalist, elegant quick release rack is designed to be easy to take on and off, and super secure in use, despite weighing just 275g (it can carry loads of up to 18kg).

The rack comes with its own 24L panniers, but reassuringly both rack and panniers are compatible with other brands, so you can easily mix and match between bikes if required.

The rest of the build uses tried and tested "more than road" components, all carefully selected to achieve the perfect fit.

Build your own custom WI.DE. in our interactive online Bike Builder, or get in touch to discuss the wide range of options available.
