For Sunday morning rides, sportives, commuting, light touring/Audax, this bike can do it all. Retro styled bike build based on the St Johns Reynolds 725 steel, brazed, lugged frameset. Designed to take centre pull brake calipers and with the capability to accept mudguards and rear rack.
With variable sized sports geometry, the frame is brazed, lugged with a 1" threaded headset and a 68mm BSA BB. There’s ample clearance for 700x32C tyres (or 28C with mudguards) Double butted Cr-mo forks.
Beautiful high gloss paint finish, half chrome forks and rear stays with panelled graphics and gold lug lining. This machine uses new retro styled components to give an authentic feel.
Sunrace RDRS rear and Shimano Sora front derailleurs, mated to Dia-Compe down tube, power ratchet, friction shifters for a 2x9 speed set up.
Brakes are the legendary Dia-Compe GC610 brakes, with authentic ‘Open’ cables, while the saddle is the Gran Compe leather touring model.
Wheels are Halo’s classic Retro, featuring their smooth 6Drive hub system, sealed bearings and a medium high spoke flange. Retro wheels are finished in a high polished silver finish, for that classic gleaming style.
