It all started out with a brew.
What if we could build a bike that didn’t cost the earth, could do a gravel sportive one weekend, a road sportive the next weekend, and do the daily commute in between?
It’s a bike designed to be ridden, hosed down occasionally, and enjoyed. Find the joy of not worrying about highly strung race machines again and remind yourself what it feels like to be 8 years old and free on two weels.
There’s too many bikes in bike shops sat doing nothing. They’re bikes no one wants, but faced with a boom through covid companies went wild and wasted a load of materials. We don’t want to be part of that problem. We have a small batch already in production (that are broadly already spoken for through existing customers interrogating us with custard creams) and we want to know how many more to put into production without producing loads of waste.
The Adventurer with Tiagra/GRX mix as pictured and specified on this page will not be customisable, we wanted to keep it as brilliant value as we could for you. When you hit “buy it now” you will be taken to a page where you will be asked for a deposit. This deposit will be removed from the final balance. We’re expecting this batch to be ready for collection or delivery in April (As of January 2023).
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’re a friendly bunch.

Gravel bikes, adventure bikes, all-road bikes. Whatever you call them, they’re great utility bikes. They offer a versatile and durable riding experience. Their larger tires and more relaxed geometry compared to road bikes allow for a comfortable ride on a variety of surfaces, including paved roads, gravel paths, and even light off-road terrain. The robust construction of the adventurer makes it suitable for carrying gear, It’s a great option for bikepacking or touring.
One of the biggest advantages of aluminium its cost to weight ratio. A lightweight bike is essential when navigating varying terrains, and aluminium provides just that. It’s lightweight enough to easily manoeuvre and accelerate, without sacrificing strength and durability. This makes it the perfect material for a bike that will be ridden on gravel, dirt, and other off-road surfaces.
We’ve thought really carefully about every component. Tiagra shifters are reliable and have a great action. The GRX400 derailleur gives range and robustness. 2x on the front means you’ve got bailout gearing if you’re loaded up (or just knackered, we hear you).
The Miche Reflex wheels are built in Italy and we’ve put them through extensive testing. They’re tough as nails.
