Edinburgh Cove '04

Edinburgh Cove '04

An extra-comfy bike with a women's open frame

No Longer Available

Product Description

If you’re looking for an extra-comfy bike with a women’s open frame, you should head for the Cove. The lightweight aluminium frame is shorter than on regular ‘ladies bikes’ so it’s less of a stretch to the bars. That’s good because a bike that’s too long with bars too low can be a pain in the neck (and the wrists and the back). Here, although the reach is shorter, the bars are higher so you can ride in upright comfort - a theme that the suspension fork and seatpost can only accentuate. For all its old world comfort, one look at the ‘silver’ aluminium-rich component spec will inform you that the Cove is no clunker.

  • The frame is lightweight aluminium.
  • The reliable coil-sprung Suntour suspension fork absorbs the bumps up front.
  • This is one of the few suspension forks that takes full-length mudguards.
  • The Bassano Trekking Comfort saddle on the suspension seatpin cushions bumps at the back.
  • Shimano Megarange gears flatten hills.
  • The semi-slick tyres are much faster than knobblies while retaining good grip.
  • The riser bars are mounted onto an adjustable-rise Aheadstem. This makes it easier to 'dial in' the most comfortable handlebar position.
