Factor Bikes Partners with Aston Martin to offer Limited Edition One-77 Cycle

Not too long after announcing that Steve Domahidy would be joining BF1 to help launch Factor bikes, (you know, the futuristic road bike with twin down tubes, integrated hydraulic disc brakes, and onboard computers?), there were rumblings of Factor working closely with one of the “UK’s coolest brands” to introduce a limited edition Factor 001.

That brand? Aston Martin. The bike? The Aston Martin One-77 Cycle. Named after the extremely limited production Aston Martin One-77 Coupe, of which only 77 were made, and most were sold before they were even built despite the nearly $1.5 million price tag (reported). Just like the car, the One-77 cycle will also be limited to just 77 pieces and won’t cost $1.5 million, but it won’t be cheap either. In fact, much like the One-77 automobile, the price on the One-77 cycle isn’t listed – most likely a “if you have to ask…” kind of thing.Ā  Buyers will have their choice of 7 different color/trim packages with special touches like color matched brake calipers, and matching leather trimmed saddle and bar tape.

Other than the custom finishes, it appears that the bike itself varies little from the original Factor 001 concept with the exception of the brakes. Gone are the custom Di2 hydraulic levers in favor of standard Shimano Dura Ace Di2 levers controlling a Hope V-twin hydraulic converter that is hidden in the bar. There are quite a bit more details on the build however, including what appears to be one of the most feature packed, integrated computers ever. All of this though, and we still have yet to see the finished bike (has to be soon, right?). If you’re thinking these computer renderings illustrate the perfect bike to sit next to your Vantage or DBS in the garage, drop them a line, who knows – they might go fast!

Full specs after the break.

About that computer? Well, in addition to it being integrated into the handlebar just like the hydraulic lines (a Hope V-twin is hidden in there as well) and Di2 wires, it has more functions than that graphing calculator you only used in high school to play games while your teacher wasn’t looking.

I’d immediately buy this bike, if they would remove of all the high tech gadgetry, I love the frame design and the wheels!

Oh hi Bill Gates! Didn’t know you read Bike Rumour.

I already know my Average Power Per Revolution – not enough!
