Reynolds 853 City Bike

Unrivalled Comfort & Style

You simply won’t find a better looking or more comfortable city bicycle than our Roadster L.

Combining classic styling with contemporary design touches it’s a bike that’s as happy on the daily commute as it is on a weekend run down to the coast.

The beating heart of this lightweight city bike is its made-to-measure Reynolds 853/725 steel frame. 853, Reynolds’ premium, lightweight, air-hardening steel tube set is used for the front triangle of the L.

853′s chemical formulation means that, unlike regular steel alloys, the strength of a welded joint can increase as it cools in air immediately after welding. Producing a frame that can have walls down to 0.4mm thick while remaining strong and with excellent tensile strength (up to 1400MPa).

Combined with the Reynolds 725 rear triangle the Roadster L frame makes for a lightweight yet comfortable ride.

Hand Made in Great Britain

We’re hugely proud to be a British brand which is why, like all of our bicycles, the Roadster L frame is handmade in Coventry, England by our master frame builder. It comes with a set of lightweight, robust and perfectly balanced wheels hand built here in Great Britain. Finally the SL is hand assembled with a selection of the finest components available right here in Great Britain.

Your bicycle can be customised from a range of options as you see fit ensuring your Roadster L is the perfect bicycle for you.

The Roadster L frameset is available as an optional upgrade. Prices from £2649
