Everything is pushing towards that 8-8-08 date for the opening of the Olympics. London’s seminal cycling company, Rapha is no exception. They have just launched their Team Issue Condor Leggero Bicycle. Building this carbon fiber beat is no easy feat. “To build such a bespoke carbon frame obviously takes time, even for a skilled frame builder. In fact it takes days for one of Condor’s craftsman to hand-cut the tubes and bond them to the carbon lugs. Then they must meticulously wrap carbon strips around each mated join one by one, enabling the builder to use carbon more effectively and therefore build both a lighter more durable frame.”

The Team Issue Condor retails for just around 2800£. More views after the jump.
