Talbot build custom road, mountain bike and touring framesets using a variety of tubesets (including Reynolds 853, 953, 931, Columbus Max, Spirit, Life and XCR) and are enthusiastic about incorporating new technologies (disc brakes, integrated carbon seat tubes, the award-winning Tesla integrated Di2 shifting) into traditional framebuilding.
