    Enigma Esprit Show Bike –Tech Focus

    I preface this posting with an apology – this is actually an ‘anti-tech’, Tech-Focus blog spot.

    Want to know one of the most common conversations we have in the shop?

    Customer: I realise the natural fit of this frameset is perfect for me, the reviews are amazing, and the tech is bang up to date. But I’m afraid I just don’t like the colour…..

    Swift staffer: Err, well there’s not a lot we can do about that I’m afraid.

    Customer: I realise it shouldn’t matter but……errrr…how about that bike over there….(points to next model up ….if we’re lucky…)

    Swift staffer: Err, sure…..let’s talk about the Duraace bike…

    Looks Matter

    I once had a conversation with an old bike shop hack. He said how he used to pillory customers for picking bikes based on aesthetics. That was until he realised that he owned 7 bikes and they were all black.

    What I’m trying to say is, looks matter. Don’t apologise about it. Part of riding a bike is the romance, and beautiful simplicity of the machine. You are more likely to ride a bike that you love!

    At Swift we’re lucky enough to feature some of the most beautiful bikes made.

    Enigma feature very highly on that list.

    Enigma Esprit Show Bike

    It’s no surprise that the Enigma bike stand was totally swamped at the London Bike Show 2016.

    When we got the opportunity to have one of their stars of the show, we jumped at the chance.

    The paint on this bike has to be seen to be believed. Trust me when I say our photos in no way do this justice. The sheer depth and detailing work takes your breath away. I’ve no idea how long Jaco (Enigma Paint wizard) spent on this frame….but I can guess it was a lot. This is truly special. Drop in and take look.

    Want to own the star of the show?

    Incredible detailing on a fantastic, classical frame set, with Chris King headset.

    Campy Athena Carbon Groupset

    HPlus Sons rims mated to Hope Hubs. All high chrome silver finish of course.

    This bike is actually for sale. So if anybody wants to own the star of the show, it’s a size 57 (5ft10, to 6ft1). Give us a call or an email.

    Move quick though. It’s my size…..
