Revolution is Edinburgh Bicycle Co-ops (even) better new brand. Compared with our Edinburgh Courier, the Revolution Tangent therefore runs faster on Continental tyres and more comfortably on an SR SunTour suspension fork. The rims are Mavic, the bars are Kore and the gear shifters, V-brakes and hubs are all Shimano Deore .
On an overall balance of performance to price, nothing comes close to matching Deore.
