Roux - Menthe
A fresh approach to an old favourite style of bike. Today, this model would be put into the class of bikes called Audax. Long distance, all day touring with a slightly competitive edge. The design goes back to the classic club bike. A sturdy cro-mo steel frame fitted with reliable components with the emphasis on comfort and resilience.
Frames – Reynolds tubing and lugs today are replaced by butted Cr-Mo steel and hand TIG welding. The geometry is designed to be comfortable and sporty.
Forks – Heavy lugged forks have been supplanted by lightweight carbon forks.
Gear controls – 18 speed Shimano Sora front and rear gears all indexed controlled with the STI brake levers are a far cry from the old friction systems.
Gearing – Compact (34×50) chain rings and a 12-27 wide ratio rear 9 speed cassette give a wide range of gears suitable for climbing tough long hills or high speed tail wind cruising.
Wheels – Triple chamber alloy rims give additional strength without adding excessive weight. Fitted with fast rolling 25mm tyres.
Special Audax features – The frame is designed to accept mudguards and the bike comes complete with a full set front and rear. Rear carrier mounts are fitted to the frame as standard
