The concept of the DECADE range is based upon innovation, detailing, high quality and above all adaptability. The new Tripster is a unique frameset, designed as a ‘fast commuter’, but it can be built in a number of different ways to exactly suit the riding style of the individual.
Use it with 700c wheels, road tyres and drops, or 26” with road tyres and flats, or 700c and flats, or set it up with 700c ‘cross tyres as a weekend racer!
The 7005 series alloy, double butted frame has it’s geometry based on our extremely successful Crosslight frames, but with tweaks such as longer head tubes to make it more ‘commuter friendly’. The frame has an ‘inboard’ mounted disc brake to keep it cleanly out of the way and the cables all run along the down tube, adding to the uncluttered look and feel.
There is plenty of clearance for larger road tyres [700c x 33 and 26” x 1.5] and the disc brakes mean swapping wheels sizes is not a problem.
Specially designed dropouts [135mm hub spacing] have seperate rack and mudguard mounts and there are eyeletted bridges for proper attachment.
The new carbon DC37 fork has disc mount and mudguard eyelets. It delivers an extremely smooth ride and precise steering.
Aqua Blue, Supergloss Black.

"We often describe a bike as 'versatile' but they really don't come much more versatile-looking than this build of the Decade Tripster Decade sell the Tripster as a frame and fork, which means you can spec it up however you choose. Ours is a pretty special kind of build, all told.
We'll try and do as many different things as possible with our test bike and we'll report back…" ROAD CC

"Being able to just grab the Tripster and ride wherever I wanted regardless of terrain or weather was the deciding grin factor. It was decidedly relaxing to ride off into the unknown on my wide knobbly tyres" ROAD CC
“It turns out though that the last couple of months of riding have been some of the most fun and carefree I’ve ever known”.
