WTF is a Roadster?

mixte bike

So, a lot of the bikes we do are beautiful big charmers built to cruise along the Promenade with a basket on the front.  But I always say it is vital to balance beauty and aesthetics with practicality.  And for me a Roadster is the essence of this: roadsters, as we build them, are stripped down, nimble-wheeled, fleet-framed go-machines.  They’re for dashing about town and carving through traffic whilst at the same time still adding  some style and grace to the streets.

Roadsters feature 6 gears on a grip shift system for a wide range of gears quickly and easily accessible.  They have no mudguards and maybe only a small circular chainguard to keep it light.  They feature large circumference 27 x 1 1/4 wheels which roll swiftly but still offer a decent amount of bump absorption and pothole protection.

So, if a speedy commute is your milieu, then look no further than one of our rad little Roadster rides –
