My Enigma Excell Titanium Bike

My Enigma Titanium Bike

I wanted a road bike that would last for years, having had two previously made from steel which had rusted into several holes. The choice was titanium or carbon, so I chose an English bike company, Enigma, who specialize in designing and building titanium bikes. Paul Hewitt Cycles in Leyland, Lancashire, who are their local agents, also offer a bike measuring fitting service along with bike and wheel building, to ensure the correct size and fit. They also suggest the correct components to complement each individual cyclists needs.

My Enigma Esprit was therefore built to measure and my specifications by Paul Hewitt who also hand built the Mavic Open Pro wheels. What a great bike he built which fits me perfectly and is such a pleasure to ride. I can only fully recommend this special service that Paul Hewitt offers .

My bikes full specification is as follows.
