Edinburgh Continental '02

Edinburgh Continental '02

Best price ever for a Sora-equipped aluminium Edinburgh road bike

No Longer Available

Product Description

While most bike buyers opt for one of the 57 varieties of ATB available today, never forget that the skinny-tyred, dropped-bar racing bike remains the most efficient form of human powered transport on the road.

The 2000 version of our Edinburgh Continental was judged 'Budget Bike of the Year' by Cycling Plus. The bike had a steel frame and cost £399.95 then. This year's Continental comes with an aluminium frame, it weighs a pound less and it costs £50 less. It must already be a contender for 'Bike of the Century'.

'A true all-rounder that will handle training duties, leisure riding, commuting or take you through the early stages of racing, time trialling or triathlon. As in 2000, highlights are the Sora combined brake and gear levers plus the 23mm Schwalbe Blizzard tyres.'
Cycling Plus: June 2001.
