This is our best selling conventional bike and you have probably seen them all over London in various states of neglect.
The T100 is a well made city bike, complete with everything you could need for commuting: mudguards, propstand, chainguard, a rear luggage rack with parcel spring, and fitted with a Shimano hub dynamo with an LED front light and an electronic standlight that keeps the rear light on when you stop. Braking is from Shimano V brakes, and gearing is a Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gear. Classic 'sit-up-and-beg' style, but with lots of room to fine tune your position, thanks to the adjustable handlebar stem.
The T100 is available in diamond or open frame, and the smaller 45cm sizes come with 26" wheels for better proportionality. The 55cm open frame comes with the "Anglais" frame which is based on the traditional "mixte" with two thin tubes running from the seat tube to the bottom bracket.
The beautiful thing is; its just a bike, do what you want with it.
