Culprit Teases Legendary New Triathlon Bike
Culprit will be officially unveiling their all-new triathlon bike at Taipei Bicycle Show next week.
The bike won’t play nice with UCI’s 3:1 rule, so it’ll be triathlon specific. These teaser images only give a taste, founder Josh Colp says the really unique parts won’t be shown until the expo opens. And that they’re patent pending. Here’s what he is saying:
The bike was developed in cooperation with Trigon Cycles and I have worked closely with them to develop a new stem, aerobar and seatpost. The new Trigon aerobar/stem will be sold on the aftermarket by the end of the year as well.
The bike will be made in 5 sizes 49, 52,54,56, 58 to offer more size options. It is compatible with both Trigon’s new bar/stem or Shimano PRO but for cable routing purposes we will sell it as a frameset all together.
Technically, it’s still in prototype stage, but it’s been on the drawing board for about a year with six months of design and 3D work put into it. Colp says it should be available in five sizes by the end of the year.
