Randoneur Special 105
Everybody should have a Randonneur, its the most versatile bike we build. Our Randonneur Special is designed for carrying your essentials for a short tour, or nipping to the shops. Comfortable for all day riding or a blast to your favourite cafe. However since we can only make 20 per year you’ll be one of the few to own one!
Delivery time on a standard bike is 12 weeks. Fully bespoke is 4 month. A 25% deposit secures your order slot.
We are very proud of Randonneur Special. Based on our handmade Reynolds 631 frame, it is equally at home on a week long credit card tour as it is on your daily commute work.
We personally recommend a build with 700 x 32 tyres. 32mm tyres allow our Randonneur to cope with unsurfaced cycle tracks and a little more luggage, without the danger of pinch flats. With wider tyres, braking comes from Dia Compe center pulls, which have great stopping power and good modulation. If you prefer a narrower tyre, we can build the bike with a 700 x 25 tyre and Shimano deep drop callipers.
We recommend a triple chainset for the ultimate hill taming gears and we can build a bike with a lowest gear of 20 inches, which is almost as low as an MTB. Double chainsets are also available, especially if you live somewhere less hilly than Yorkshire.
Choose from on of our 44 different colour options and matching transfers. We can also add contrasting colours, lug lining and/or chrome plating for an extra cost. Please email us for more details.
