The Darwin’s comfortable Reynolds 725 steel frame gives a versatile chassis on which to build a World class tourer. The adjustable ADS-3 dropout system allows for fitment of the iconic 14 speed Rohloff Speedhub giving the equivalent gear range of a typical 27 speed mountain bike, but quietly running protected, inside the rear wheel hub. The Darwin has a split rear seat stay, so can also be built with a belt drive and is Gates certified.
The leather covered Passport Pilot saddle in conjunction with the multi position Zygote touring bars from Genetic, mean that an all day, high comfort, long distance touring position can be achieved.
International Standard 160mm Discs with TRP Spyre calipers will haul down the speed when required, and being cable operated, are relatively easy to maintain if you venture far.
With multiple carrier fixing points and mudguard eyelets, plus lug cage mounts on the forks, the versatile Darwin frame can allow your bike to evolve to meet your desires.
The Darwin Speedtour is truly a versatile machine.
