Edinburgh Courier '02

Edinburgh Courier '02

Our famous single-chainring, slim-tyred street bike

No Longer Available

Product Description

Like the Edinburgh Contours, the Courier is built on an aluminium ATB frame but here, the emphasis is on stripped-down simplicity. Think, 'stealth city bike' as opposed to 'comfort ATB'.

  • 26 x 1.5” semi-slick street tyres.
  • 8-speed gearing with one single chainring and one single gear shifter - lighter and simpler than dual-shifter triple chainring systems, yet enough gears to cope with a hilly city.
  • A chainguard helps keep trousers clean and a chain keeper help keep the chain in place.
  • 'A street-style mountain bike that won't break the bank. Thanks to its slick tyres and an all-up weight that's pounds lighter than other bikes, the Courier is an efficient commuter.'
  • Quote from bycycle magazine - Oct / Nov 2000. In fact the reviewer liked the bike so much, he bought one for himself.
