Historic racing frame with dynamic riding position:
Authentic 1930s Path Racer frame with a long stable wheelbase and relaxed steering geometry, suited to speed cycling and gravel racing!
With traditional frame-mounted race number plate.
The frame is hand-built using 100 year old traditional methods – with original lightweight Reynolds 531 tubing hand-brazed into lugs – for the attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.
With traditional tubular crown forks and specially formed D section stays.
Semi-drop classic racing handlebars: Swept-back, high-strength stainless steel bar for confident handling whilst racing.
Finished with traditional black leather bar tape.
Brass ‘ping’ Bell: A classic bell that is a refined addition to any bicycle.
The bell has a domed shape body with a simple sprung finger mechanism that sounds out a clear ‘ting’ to let others know you’re approaching. The bell can be attached to either the handlebars or the stem.
Classic 5 speed hub Gears: With an easy-shift gear lever, they allow you to tackle hills and glide along gracefully on flatter terrain with ease. Fully enclosed gear system that requires minimal maintenance.
Powerful fully-enclosed 90mm hub brakes: Large diameter hub-brakes provide reliable stopping power come rain or shine. Enclosed and sealed from all-weathers, these brakes are low maintenance and robust.
Iconic GB wingnuts: Adds to the Speed 5’s authenticity and makes removal of the wheels that little bit easier. Manufactured in England using the original tooling.
Classic tyres with puncture protection: a reliable tyre with a puncture protection insert, and a tread design that allows for secure contact with the road surface but with a low rolling resistance.
Traditional Brooks ‘Swift’ leather saddle: The handsome ‘Swift’ is a gentleman’s racing saddle with delicately hand-skived lower sides for greater comfort whilst pedalling. The leather allows the saddle to breathe and form to your shape over time becoming uniquely comfortable. It’s finished with large hand-beaten copper rivets, and comes with handy loops on the rear for luggage attachment.
Pedals with traditional toe-clips and leather straps: keep your feet in securely place, helping to transfer your pedal-power more efficiently.
Golden half-link chain: eye catching design and tough construction to transfer powerful cadence.
