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.

Cool and classic or with the contemporary innovation of disc brakes and a sloping top tube, if that's what you want. Don't think that a steel bike is just for winter or an Eroica, enjoy it all year round, because it really does ride that well all the time regardless of the terrain or weather.

If you want it 'Eroica' ready, we'll fit down-tube lever bosses (as an option) and actually charge you £10 less – we don't increase prices just because it maybe called 'retro'.

How did it get its model number?

The 1950s were the hey-day of British frame building with the post war cycling boom. 01952 is the Ironbridge area telephone std code!
