It's light and can climb like a mountain goat too - you’d be surprised how much weight you save when mechs, cassettes and shifters are ommitted from the spec sheet. A Reynolds 520 Cro-Mo frame with slim-stays and a relatively stiff mainframe matched to a slim, triple-butted lugged Cro-Mo fork is a combination that gives a wonderful mix of smooth comfort and lightning responses. Geometry-wise it's a 'modern track bike meets road classic' kind of ride that’s won praise from everyone that’s ridden it.
Sometimes gears just aren’t necessary and one-speed works just fine. It’s a lovely way to ride when all you have to do is pedal, there’s no fussing with gears, plus there’s the added benefit that it’s pretty much maintenance free.
Using the same alloy as Reynolds 525 butted cromoly tubing but made under license for Reynolds in Taiwan to their same exacting standards and high quality. Reynolds 520 tubing enables affordable and easier access to a Reynolds steel-framed bicycle.
X3 different tube wall thickness x3 (material is reduced where it’s not needed and added where it is) combine with a tapered shape to help give a nice, compliant ride.
One of the 'unseen' areas where many manufacturers will frustratingly cut corners. We spec a Shimano BB-UN55 square taper bottom bracket for their unbeatable durability and legendary lifespan.
