Looking for an all-round Road riding performer with flat bars? This large frame flat bar Osprey is the perfect fit for those riders looking for a distance or fast, everyday use Road bike. The Osprey offers the right balance between lightweight speed and a more upright, traditional Road riding posture to make it the ideal go-to bike for the regular rider who likes to fly.
Stepping up to the 2016 Reid Osprey flat bar will allow you to experience the speed and efficiency of a high-end road bike at a very affordable price, without sacrificing the control in traffic and ease of use you get with flat handlebars. It's perfect for all-day epic rides, a regular fast commute and training rides. Its rear rack and mudguard mounts mean that you can easily set it up as a fast commuter or tourer.
The 6061 aluminium alloy frame comes in 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 34/50 tooth crankset, combined with an 8 speed rear cluster, gives a wide, evenly spaced range of gears. Shimano Claris shifters and derailleurs 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.Read more
