We've dressed the frame functionally with the emphasis on long-lasting and maintenance-free riding. Highlights include the reliable Shimano square-taper bottom bracket, the sealed cartridge bearing M:Part Elite headset, smooth rolling Formula hubs, trusty Shimano R451 stoppers and the comfy new Continental Grand Sport Race 25c tyres - which provide ample room for full-length mudguards without being sluggish or puncture-prone.
The 46/18T gearing gives a perfect 'middle-of-the-road' ratio (67.4 gear inches) ensuring your knees don't pop on the climbs but you're not spinning out too quickly on the flat either. We've also kept the 120mm track rear spacing and flip-flop rear hub for those wanting the option to run fixed.
Functional, reliable and as-practical-a-single-speed as you're ever likely to encounter.
With similar properties to the famed 531 alloy-steel, Reynolds 520 butted cromoly tubing is made under license for Reynolds in Taiwan, allowing more people affordable access to bikes and frames made from tubing manufactured to their same exacting standards and high quality.
Not only do the Shimano BR-451 57mm brake calipers do a great job of bring you to a halt, they also provide the room needed to run full-length mudguards for protection from the elements.
One of the 'unseen' areas where many manufacturers will frustratingly cut corners for problems to arise further down the line. We spec a Shimano BB-UN55 square taper bottom bracket and M:Part Elite headset on the Flyer for their unbeatable durability and legendary lifespan.
We've expanded the size offerings and added a new, smaller 50cm frame size for 2014, meaning more of you can now hopefully enjoy our bikes and achieve a perfect fit.
