Bike Profile: Eastway Emitter R0

My Eastway Emitter R0 is a truly custom build. At the start of 2016, we decided to do something a bit different with Team Wiggle bikes; rather than have identical loan bikes for the year, we would each have a frameset, and be responsible for building it up ourselves. The idea allowed us to choose parts that truly fitted our style of riding, and that were optimal for purpose.

My Eastway Emitter is built up for endurance road riding, and has a distinctly Italian theme.

The build kit features a Campagnolo Record mechanical groupset; as well as Campagnolo Zonda 2-way Fit wheels, fitted with Hutchinson tubeless road tyres (Read my blog on 'Going Tubeless on Road Tyres').

The finishing kit comes from fi'zi:k; whilst accessories come from LifeLine, Scicon Bags and Bar Fly.

It might not be the lightest or most high-tech build, but it is comfortable and reliable. You need good reliable kit when you're riding 200 mile unsupported missions, and travelling abroad for events.

My first year on Campagnolo, and I'm loving it.


I chose a 52-36T 'super-compact' chainset


Campagnolo and Italian parts feature heavily in the build


A Campagnolo Zonda 2-Way Fit Wheelset, fitted with Hutchinson tubeless tyres


Clean and simple stoppers from Campagnolo


The cockpit is all-alloy - the Fizik Cyrano R3


The seatpost is also Fizik Cyrano R3, fitted with a Fizik Arione VS saddle


The little things... I love the Fizik Endurance Super Tacky Bar Tape


Ritchey headsets come as standard with Eastway frames


I'm a big fan of these LifeLine Professional Carbon Bottle Cages


A LifeLine Chain Catcher keeps the chain in check

A set of well-used Shimano Dura Ace pedals are the only Japanese component on the build


The little details...


The Eastway Emitter R0 is a great looking bike
