The Holdsworth Brevet is a bold take on the classic Audax bike, built for comfort on the longest rides it's just the ticket for the serious Randonneur. For every rider looking for a trustworthy steel framed bike of classic proportions that's built for the open road then Brevet is the obvious choice.
Paint sample frame with no TT cable routing. Save a bundle to spend on zip ties!
Frameset No other material offers the feel of steel. It absorbs road shock and lays out a magic carpet over the roughest road surfaces. Built from lightweight double butted Cro-mo tubing the Brevet offers a steady assured ride.
A modestly sloping top-tube offers plenty of clearance for moving around in the saddle. Smaller main frame tubes also mean reduced weight, which you'll appreciate when the roads start pointing upwards. A steeper seat tube puts you over the cranks for the easiest pedal stroke while a carefully considered front end package tracks straight and true even on the most challenging descents.
As you'd expect we've specified a BSA bottom bracket and a slender 27.2mm seat post to complement the Brevet's traditional styling. The Brevet is finished off with investment cast dropouts and brazed on mudguard mounts, full-length of course.
Groupset:we love SRAM's Rival 11 (22-speed) groupset and so do our customers. Rival 11 has quickly become the most popular groupset we offer due to its striking combination of precise shifting, practical ergonomics and low weight. SRAM's innovative Double Tap shifting provides instantaneous gear shifts from the lightest touch at the controls. Rival's dual pivot brake callipers can be relied upon to slow you down in a hurry whenever you haul on the brakes, whether you're racing or putting the miles in during long weekend rides. Not forgetting the wide-range 11-32 teeth cassette option to help you spin up the steepest climbs; with quality like this, its easy to see why SRAM Rival is so well regarded.
Wheelset: Campagnolo's 11-speed Khamsin wheelset provide a firm foundation for your best cycling efforts. With an asymmetric rim design and lightweight construction the Kahmsins have an enviable reputation for top flight performance.
Designed for long days in the saddle the Brevet breathes new life into the classic Audax formula. Grab your ticket and go ride.
NB:Finishing kit differs from that shown in images. Bike comes with Holdsworth Gran Sport Saddle, Seatpost, Headset, Stem and Handlebar.
