Stepping up to the 2015 Reid Osprey will allow you to experience the speed and efficiency of a high-end road bike at a very affordable price. It's perfect for all-day epic rides, hill climbing, training rides or even criterium racing. Its rear rack and mudguard mounts mean that you can easily set it up as a fast commuter or tourer. It's also available in a flat bar version if that suits your style better!
The 6061 aluminium alloy frame comes four sizes to give you a great fit. The frame is light, yet has excellent lateral stiffness for power in the sprints and the climbs. The carbon fibre fork provides a degree of vertical compliance to reduce road buzz while still giving precise handling. The Alex double-walled aluminium alloy rims are light and strong. They're tough enough to suit an every day commuter, but light enough to enjoy long distance endurance rides or hill climbs. The Quando hubs are serviceable and adjustable for exceptional durability. A 42/52 tooth crankset, combined with an 8 speed rear cluster, gives a wide, evenly spaced range of gears. Shimano Claris shifters and deraileurs give outstanding reliability and performance. The Tektro dual-pivot alloy caliper brakes provide great stopping power, excellent modulation and easy adjustment.
Integrated brake and gear levers (Shimano STI) means that you can brake and change gears without moving your hands from the hoods of the Drop Bars. Sealed bearings in the bottom bracket and a threadless 1-1/8" headset make for minimal maintenance. The whole package has been chosen for maximum value, durability and performance, making this one of the best road bikes for the price.Read more
