A fresh approach to an old favourite style of bike. Today this model would be put into the class of bikes called Audax. Long distance, all day touring with a slightly competitive edge. The design goes back to the classic club bike. A sturdy steel frame fitted with reliable components with the emphasis on comfort and resilience.

Frames- Cr-Mo butted steel tubing all hand TIG welded. The geometry is designed to be comfortable and sporty. 

Forks- heavy lugged forks have been supplanted by lightweight carbon forks.

Gear controls- 18 speed Shimano Sora front and rear gears all indexed controlled with the STI brake levers are a far cry from the old friction systems.

Gearing - Compact (34x50) chain rings and a 12-27 wide ratio rear 9 speed cassette give a wide range of gears suitable for climbing tough long hills or high speed tail wind cruising.

Wheels – Triple chamber alloy rims give additional strength without adding excessive weight. Fitted with fast rolling 25mm tyres.

Comfort- a deep padded saddle and gel infused bar tape take the sting out of the roughest roads.

Special Audax features- The frame is designed to accept mudguards and the bike comes complete with a full set front and rear. Rear carrier mounts are fitted to the frame as standard.
