RATHDOWNE DERAILLEUR BICYCLE
The Brown Jersey 'Rathdowne' is the first bike we've built utilizing the legendary Reynolds CRMO tubing - Reynolds 520 to be precise. Sharing the same geometry as the 'Waler', this is the big brother of our touring bike range built with higher grade components to compliment the Reynolds tubing used to build the frame. This bike is designed to be a very hardy all round performer that is built on a relaxed frame with high quality components to give reliable performance over many years of riding.
Finished in Metallic Black and coated with a double epoxy clear coat, the frame (available in 4 sizes) is surprisingly lightweight for a bike of this style and durability. The geometry is designed to give the rider a reliable and predicatable experience with an upright riding position and high level of stability. Attachment points for guards, pannier racks, bidon carges are all there to give you the ulitmate flexibility when fitting out your touring machine.
The drivetrain uses a FSA triple chainset with Shimano SORA front derailleur and shifters combine with Shimano Acer 9 speed rear derailleur - all up giving you a huge range of 27 gears.
Like all Brown Jersey bikes, the Rathdowne utilizes only sealed bearing races on hubs, bottom bracket and headset - part of the higher quality inherit in all models that sets the brand head and shoulders above competitors.
Velo comfort saddle, Velo ergonomic rubber grips, Weinman double wall anodised Alloy 700C rims, Stainless spokes (plated black), sealed bearing Formula hubs and fitted with with Maxxis Overdrive 35mm tyres complete a package that gives a sure and comfortable riding experience.
