"If you’re looking for a bike to take you on an epic adventure, weekend tour or just to load up for the daily ride to work, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better value bike than this anywhere." Bike Radar - Warren Rossiter, Senior Technical Editor Road.

Our take on the classic steel road tourer: smooth, reliable and assured. Built around a Reynolds 631 steel frame, Santiago is the definition of dependable. Capable of being battered, fitted with mudguards as a winter workhorse, ridden all day in comfort as an audax slayer or loaded with racks and panniers and pedalled around the world. Whatever your endeavour, Santiago has your back.

Reynolds 631 is the construction material for tourers because of its classic smooth feel, long life and ease of maintenance.

Santiago knows its heritage; cold-worked, air-hardened steel is steeped in the history of long-distance riding. But with bang-up-to-date geometry, Santiago has a refreshing feel that you know will be good for years to come: 450 mm chainstays, 1.1 m wheelbase, 71 degree head angle, a fork rake of 55 and generous tyre clearance. This makes for a truly comfortable, fast, assured bike, both in its own right (audax slaying, winter riding) or when racked up and loaded for multi-month travels.

Santiago is a weight carrying beast, capable of taking over 100 litres of storage with full traditional rack and guard mounts and three sets of bottle cage bottles for creating your own rig.

Gear ratio comes in two standard forms based around a compact setup, with a regular 50 - 34 tooth cog upfront and 11-32 cassette at the back for riding on its own, and capable of 11-40 cassette to give a super low ratio (from 21” to 120”) when loaded up.

As the Young Offenders said ‘there are two things you need for an adventure: a treasure map and a friend that’s dumb enough to go with you’. Meet Santiago, your friend for epic journeys that aren’t meant to end.

 


The Features

Reynolds 631 steel tubing

Durable, smooth and assured on those multi-month trips Reynolds 631 steel is an excellent material for round-the-world touring where you’re completely dependent on your bike. We’d be surprised if you needed to get your frame repaired, but it’s comforting to know that finding a steel welder in the middle of nowhere is far easier than getting your alloy frame repaired.​

Traditional bike, contemporary geometry

Santiago’s takes classic road bike geometry as a starting point, with a longer wheelbase and higher stack height for a more comfortable riding position and assured ride, whether you’re travelling light or fully loaded up.

Generous tyre clearance

​Clearance for up to 650b x 47 mm or 700c x 37 mm tyres that make your ride more comfortable and give better grip on the bitumen as you corner.

Full traditional mounts

With full rack and guard mountains, 3 sets of bottle cage bosses and extra cage mounts on the fork, Santiago can handle being fully loaded up.​
