Tony Pereira & Ira Ryan 'Continental'
The ‘Continental Bicycle’ comes from the collaborative hands of Ira Ryan and Tony Pereira, involved with the Rapha Continental as builders and riders since its inception. Together, these friends and master-builders bring their passion for riding fast and hard—no matter the conditions—to this Continental bicycle for Rapha.
The Continental frameset will be made from a hand-picked blend of Zona and Spirit tubing from Columbus Steel and will be both lugged and fillet-brazed, reflecting Ira and Tony’s preferred techniques. The Continental is an all-weather, all-terrain, all-the-time steel bicycle fashioned after the steeds ridden by the Rapha Continental riders.
Offered only as a complete bicycle, every component has been purposefully selected after more than five years of riding some of America’s best-kept secrets.
