The orange and blue Holdsworth livery is a true British classic – the firm started building bikes way back in 1933. Holdsworth’s most iconic era was in the 1970’s with the Holdsworth-Campagnolo professional team, at the time the dominant force in British road racing.

Since British online specialist Planet X took control of the brand it’s produced fantastic recreations of the classic Professional and Italia frames. The Corsa celebrates Holdsworth’s heritage, but wraps vintage livery around a cutting edge steel frame.

  • Highs: Spec is outstanding for the money; ride is bang up to date and exciting too
  • Lows: Its not the full ‘retro’ experience, tall gearing for endurance riding
  • Buy if: You want a bike that harks back to the classic days of British racing, but with a thoroughly modern ride

The frame is built around Columbus steel and is testament to the frame builder’s art, with super smooth Tig welds
