Firefly Bicycles 650B Randonneur

Firefly Bicycles FNL-204

The atmosphere in the new Fireflys Bicycles workshop must be electric. Their output is prolific, yet they still manage to produce frames that are, in a word, spellbinding. This is one of their latest, a 650B Randonneur that’s ultra-modern but still sports a few classic touches.

Finished with a hint of the Gulf Oil racing scheme, the titanium frame and forks feature integrated cable routing throughout, overcoming the challenge posed by the myriad of wires required by the SON 28 dynamo hub, Avid disc brakes and the Campagnolo Athena group.

Firefly can’t help but sit at the cutting edge of the modern handmade scene. Specialists in titanium and stainless, their anodized graphics and branding also help exude a futuristic look. This rando is the perfect blend of old and new, topped with a Berthoud saddle and VO Grand Cru crankset.

    so much clashing and so much goodness.

  • Spiny Norman

    A stiff fork is needed for good performance with a disk brake, which is why I would not put a disk brake on the front end of a rando bike. #ouch

    Here we go; 650B for road bikes. I suppose if someone with wheelchair gets a flat you can donate a tube without stretching it!
