The Skyelander 700c touring frameset. 


The frames are hand built in the UK and available in either Reynolds 631 (525 stays) or Reynolds 853 (+ 725 stays). The fork is Reynolds 631.


We have designed two framesets - one for 700c wheels and the other for 650b's. This one is the 700c frame and fork set. Complete bikes will be available circa June 2017.


The Skyelander 700c is ideal for long distance touring. For those looking for a 700c version of the Kibo for road touring then this would be the frameset for you.

  • The Skyelander 700c is a British made touring bike hand built by one of England’s top framebuilders, Lee Cooper.


    The lugged frame is built using air hardened Reynolds 631 for the main frame. The stays are Reynolds 525. An upgrade to Reynolds 853 main frame with Reynolds 725 stays is an option). The forks are Reynolds 631. For sizing click here and geometry click here


    This frameset comes with a choice of a threaded steerer for a quill stem (1") or a threaedlees steerer (1 1/8") for an ahead stem.


    It's designed with clearance for 35mm tyres with mudguards, or 45mm without mudguards.


    The frame's relatively long chainstays (445mm) and steel frame make this the ideal companion on a long distance loaded road trip, both strong and comfortable. 


    The frames are lugged for optimal strength, but the frames can also be fillet brazed. We offer both an ahead and quill version.

    It is finished in Dusk Blue. The frames are double powder coated for increased durability and longevity.


    All of our frames are finished to a high standard. This includes facing the top and bottom surfaces of the headtube, reaming the head and seat tubes as well as facing the bottom bracket shell.


    The frame and forks will come with a Tange Levin 1" threaded headset or the Tange Levin J27 Technoglide 1 1/8" threadless headset, a seat bolt, Reynolds decals and a pewter headbadge. Please let us know when ordering if you would like the STANFORTH decal lacquered onto the downtube.
