Powder coating: Like all of our bikes they are double powder coated. Powder coat is one of the most durable and long lasting quality finishes available and with our double powder coat it helps minimise chipping, scratching, fading and wearing versus other finishes. The Stanforth Conway comes in Bahama Gold or Ash Green.
Saddle: The all-weather Brooks Cambium C17 saddle, in black. Brooks have designed the top so it’s flexible, maintenance-free and waterproof. To the eye, the C17 may appear quite racy in its shape and lines, which indeed it is. The geometry and dimensions are based of the B17 which we also use on some of our bikes – so it will give similar comfort mile after mile. We can also fit the bike with the C17S designed for the female anatomy, just let us know if you would like the S version when ordering.
Bottom bracket: The Shimano BBR60 Ultegra level BB with HollowTech II technology. It has a wider outer bearing placement and a larger axle diameter for more efficiency as well as stiffness.
Headset: The Tange Seiki J27 1 1/8“ threadless headset - a high quality headset light enough for racing and strong enough for touring. It’s constructed from lightweight and strong duraluminum alloy. It has a fully sealed mechanism with cartridge bearings.
