USAGE The Amazon is a high-spec, do-anything bike for the rider with a taste for adventure. If you could only have one bike then this is it. Touring, Cyclocross, Audax or stripped down for a fast road ride with narrow section tyres, the Amazon with its array of braze-ons provides a multitude of solutions.
DESIGN The geometry of the Amazon has been designed to provide day-long comfort and stability under load, whilst still offering rewarding handling for a faster ride. The Amazon is our Cyclocross/touring/upright road and Audax frame that can be configured in a multitude of variations to meet your performance and riding criteria. Complete rack and fender braze-ons, with ample tyre clearance allows you to use and attach anything that your riding requires. The frame is cantilever, V-brake, and disc brake compatible as well as having three sets of water bottle bosses.
