Description

Bristol Bicycle

A highly versatile drop-bar gravel bike designed for adventures large and small. A weekend away with just a bivvy bag? A round-the-world tour with four panniers? The EXPEDITION bike will excel at either.

  • Lightweight aluminium frame, tapered steel fork
  • Triple chainset for wide gear range, and no large jumps in between
  • Shimano 8-speed drivetrain including LX chain for maximum strength and longevity
  • Shimano Sora disc brakes
  • Optional LED hub dynamo lights front and rear, with standlight function
  • 36 stainless steel spokes for strength and durability
  • Clearance for up to 54mm (2.00″) tyres

 


This is Ruth Newton building a bike with Mat and Jake from Bristol Bicycles for her In Tandem around-the-world cycle tour in 2018
