Making its debut today at Bespoked, Spoon’s new Sestriere scandium road bike brings the complete price of a lightweight, handmade bike into reach – even with fully custom geometry, wireless electronic shifting & Zipp carbon wheels. While premium custom bikes can easily push into five figures, the new Spoon Customs Sestriere reins the price tag in under £5k pricetag in Dedacciai scandium & 7005 alloy…

Premium custom but without premium pricing. That’s the idea behind Spoon Customs building their newest road bike from scandium alloy tubing instead of carbon.

Still made by hand in Europe, and still offering fully customizable geometry & custom wet paint, the Sestriere Scandium Disc road bike takes advantage of the lightweight and easy workability of scandium & aluminum alloys.

Geometry is based on the proven handling & performance of Spoon’s flagship Var carbon bike, adapted to fit each individual rider. Buyers can go to Spoon’s Surrey, England HQ southwest of London for the same 3-hour custom fit session as their more premium custom steel or carbon bikes to ensure they get the ideal bike for them.

We wanted to take everything that feels good about our process and the character and ride-quality of our halo bikes, and bring that to more people. We wanted to do so in a completely custom bike, built with no limitations on equipment and following the same involved experience of buying, designing, and owning a bike made just for you; but delivered with exceptional value,” describes Spoon Customs founder Andy Carr.

The Spoon Sestriere is welded in Italy from a mix of triple-butted Dedacciai scandium & 7005 alloy tubing – creating a frame Spoon describes as “both stiffer and lighter than aluminium and requires no heat treatment after welding, ensuring a stiff and responsive frame without the downsides or harsh ride quality often associated with cheaper alloys“.

The modern alloy road bike features a 1.5″ tapered steerer, modular internal routing in the downtube, flat mount disc brakes, and 12mm thru-axles. It sticks with a classic 27.2mm seatpost with external clamp, a 68mm BSA threaded bottom bracket, and gets a proper head badge.

Every bike in the history of ever is “handmade”. I think some robots built some BMC and Giants but certainly ever single metal bike is made by human hands.
