"Ironbridge... the bikes are exceptionally well crafted, but it's the Ironbridge ethos that resonated with Cyclist: take decades worth of frame building know how from the guys at Swallow, distill it into a range of beautifully designed frames and share the task of manufacturing around independent UK frame builders.
The long term benefit for the local handmade bicycle industry could be huge, and the rider-consumer will reap the rewards. Just look at that brake bridge."
Designed for touring and travelling how you want to go.
Fully loaded for an expedition, with less luggage to explore less well travelled roads or tracks or with no luggage at all just to enjoy the countryside.
A Jack of all trades and a master or mistress of them all.
If there is one bike that can do it quick and nimbly, this is it. Choose your surface and your tyres and off you go, fast and sure footed and even adding luggage won't slow you down.
A classic lugged frame with wrap around top-eyes brings back the elegance of the hey-day of British frame building.
Post Second World War, through the bike boom of the '50s tapering off in the 1960s and then the late 1970 and early 80s boom to taper off again in the late 80s and almost dying off in the 1990s, lugged steel frames ruled! More grand Tours and classic races have been won on steel frames than any other material.
