PRODUCT DETAILS

The utterly beautiful Fat Creation Custom 3T Strada Frameset occupies the zenith of bespoke, performance engineering. The result of an exclusive collaboration between Saddleback and custom paintworks Fat Creations, this is an elevation of an already top-tier frameset into a truly celestial realm.

Exclusive to Saddleback and with only two in existence, once they're gone, they're gone.

Fat Creations

Brainchild of Sussex based Ali McLean, Fat Creations is a bespoke paintworks that prides itself on transforming bicycle frames into lasting works of art. The custom painted frames that leave McLean’s studio not only demonstrate virtuosic design flair but conform to top-tier, professional grade finishes. A favoured collaborator for leading World Tour teams and professional athletes, Fat Creations' work is custom paintwork at its finest.

Each carbon frame that Fat Creations treat is initially prepared by hand. Dedicated and intricate refinements gradually build into deep and rich colours – the final results are truly beautiful. The smooth and seamless surfaces are then polished using specialised equipment to give a finish like no other. The process utilised in this exclusive 3T Strada is said to be three times as labour intensive as a regular custom paint job and is sure to turn heads on and off the road.

3T Strada

The Strada frameset has been explicitly constructed to be fully-optimised around wider tyres – up to 30mm – ensuring superior comfort whilst equalling, if not surpassing, the aerodynamic refinement of the very-best performance bikes currently available. In research and development 3T utilises extensive wind tunnel testing at speeds of both 20mph and 30mph, meaning that aero optimisation is perfectly suited to real-world conditions.

Simplicity, beauty and function are inextricably linked in every detail of the frameset. From the elegantly curved seat tube to the minimalist, continuous-fibre crown, the Strada marries grace with aggressive racing potential. The proximity of the fork to the downtube invites an attacking riding position, whilst the integrated flat-mount disc inserts afford a previously unknown level of streamlining. Even the bottle mounts are fully optimised such that maximal airflow is retained when carrying fluids. Every single contour, curve and cut of the frame is a direct response to careful aerodynamic analysis, and the rewards of such precision are felt from the very first ride.
