Whether it’s for that bit of fun around town, as a sturdy commuter, as the weekend rambler or maybe as that entry level Cyclo-Cross for if you want to give something special a go.
Taking the city potholes and turning them on their heads, the Substance breaks over these crags & bumps in much the way a 29er would. In its battleship grey and black finish, it’s got a look that gets better with a little bit of dirt and grime. But there is much more to the Substance than just an about-town commuter.
Loaded from top to bottom with a full Shimano® Sora Groupset, you get the seamless shifting of the higher groups but at a cost that doesn’t break the budget. A Compact Sora Chainset and wide ratio cassette means the Substance should have all the gear options you’d need - wrapped up in one. The frame is made using Reynolds® 520 butted Chrome-Moly tubes to provide that classic steel ride-comfort and endurance at a competitive weight. Loaded with all the rack & guards mounts you would need, it also lends itself to long cycling holidays and touring around Europe. The front and rear Avid® disc brakes give you more than enough reassurance that you have the stopping power that you need whatever the weather.
With everything that this bike has and everything that you can do and enjoy on it… how could we call the Substance anything else?
