Factor Bikes Test Pilot, David Millar said: “I hope the bikes and experience we bring can help AG2R La Mondiale and Romain Bardet, one of the most exciting racers in the peloton, win the Tour de France.”
Launching the new bike, hosted by his new enterprise, CHPT.III (chapter three), cyclist David Millar talked about the three chapters of his career; before his doping ban, after his doping ban and now – the third chapter.
Millar explains- “I started working with Castelli in 2006, developing pro race apparel, we worked together, all the time pushing the envelope, and in the process becoming the benchmark for racing tech. As my career came to an end I realised I would no longer have that relationship, I’d have to wear clothing somebody else had designed.
I didn’t want that. I wanted to create cycling clothing that was constructed for my new life as a non-racer, only designed for riding, not racing, but still with the latest tech and with a collaboration that I’d always known. This is the third Chapter.”
Brompton Bikes has also created this special edition everyday bike in collaboration with CHPT.III. Each Brompton is handmade in London with many customisable parts to make it perfect for you. Its ability to fold into a small, portable package make the Brompton ideal for city living.
The connection between CHPT.III and both Factor and Brompton offers cycling at both ends of the spectrum. Factor is at the cutting edge and forefront of racing technology and Brompton is a bike that represents lifestyle with an access all areas approach.
