Brought to you by Ivanhoe Cycles Megastore
Ideal for anyone wishing to ride longer distances, or simply have a bike that is light and easy to handle.
Made from lightweight aluminium, with a tough durable finish, it is a bike that will be a pleasure to ride for many,many years. The baked enamel finish is resistant to all types of weather, and will even withstand some mild abuse. Of course it is not indestructible, but it is tough.
The forks are carbon, to improve the ride, as carbon reduces the vibration transferred up through the road.
This bike has 27 gears. The advantage is not the number of gears, but rather that the gear system is of higher quality and will change more efficiently under load. Also the extra 3 gears mean that the ratios are a little closer, so there is less difference between gears (makes it easier when climbing hills). They have a very light action, so it is easy to change gear.
The brakes are similar (easy to use). The action is light, requiring minimal pressure, but they will stop very effectively when the need arises. The Kenda tyres grip well, and will give good traction even under extreme braking. The tyres roll well, and require less effort than some of the wider, chunkier tyres.
The saddle is comfortable, and is colour co-ordinated to suit the bike.
This is a light, high quality bike and very good value for money, come along a have a free test ride so you can see for yourself.
