Edinburgh Courier '01

Edinburgh Courier '01

Simple (single chainring), lightweight, aluminium street bike

No Longer Available

Product Description
When we loaned the Edinburgh Courier to a magazine last autumn, the reviewer enjoyed it so much he asked to buy it. He was amazed we could offer a lightweight aluminium-framed bike at such a good price. He agreed that the 8-speed transmission was lighter and simpler than 24-speed and all you might need for city riding. The chain-keeper, which prevents the chain coming off, was described as 'a nice touch'. He found the semi-slick 26 x 1.5” tyres 'infinitely better than pseudo-knobbly tyres'. He noted that a spare pair of tyres would be all you required if you wanted to take it away for a weekend's off road riding. He concluded, 'When I asked other experienced cyclists what it cost, most suggested prices around £275-£300. Even if you add mudguards and a rack, it barely comes to that. As a city hack bike it's great. Better thought out than most hybrids and excellent value for money.' bycycle mag, Oct/November 2000.
