All our bikes are built to order, which means we can make changes to suit your needs and build a bike that's unique. It also means we can ensure every single part is exactly what you want: no compromises. Alex took an Edit for a test ride and decided to buy one there and then. This is his bike.

Alex's Bike - a custom built Airdrop Edit

Suspension is courtesy of Rockshox, with the Pike 160mm Solo Air fork up front and Monarch Plus Debonair shock out back. The drivetrain is SRAM GX 1x11 paired up with Raceface Aeffect cranks and a 32 tooth direct-mount narrow wide chainring.

Alex chose the new Raceface Aeffect pedals in anodised black, which match up really nicely with the cranks.

Alex went for an Easton Haven 35 50mm stem to give him a bit more reach (he's 6'4"), but it's within the tolerances that the Edit was designed for. He's matched that up to the Easton Havoc 35 handlebar, giving a full 800mm width.
