Mark Reilly 1967-2021

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our founder and friend, Mark Reilly. An apprentice of master framebuilder Ron Cooper, Mark's 30-year career spanned workshops including Omega and Enigma before he founded Reilly Cycleworks (initially as Nerve Bicycles) with composites specialist and longtime collaborator, Neil FitzGerald, in 2014. Mark cited steel builds for cycling pros Bjarne Riis, Brian Holm and Sean Yates among his favourites. Mark remained passionate about bike design and framebuilding through to the end. He will be remembered for his celebrated geometry and world-class frame designs.

CARBON FRAME PRODUCTION

Posted by mark porter on

At our sister workshop deep inside formula one land in Brackley, near Silverstone we produce the REILLY 600SL carbon frame. We run two Bridgeport milling machines to miter our carbon tubes. Carbon is very tricky to cut accurately and we use very special rotary saws. We also use the full set of tube mitring tools and jigs from Anvil tools in the USA, totally invaluable. Above you can see our Anvil seat stay mitering fixture, attached to one of our Bridgeports. Being custom made only we have a huge array of tubes to choose from and many different BB shells...
