Product Description

With a brand new, classic-inspired twin-toptube frame design and simplified 1x9 drivetrain, the Borough is a robust workhorse of a bike designed to carry the rider and luggage from A to B in style, with speed, sophistication and comfort.

Modern compact geometry and a swept riser handlebar combine to provide a slightly shorter, more upright and relaxed overall rider position for confidence-inspiring urban jaunts.

Fully equipped with extended extra-long full-length mudguards, puncture protection tyres, and even a rear luggage rack, the Borough represents the perfect blend of classic, understated looks combined with the modern, dependable and top-performing componentry.


Mjölnir chromoly

AKA ‘Thor’s Hammer’ and pronounced ‘Myol-n(ee)r‘ (rolls off the tongue, eh?). Our double-butted, cold-drawn, seamless, Taiwanese chromoly tubeset also goes by the aliases of 4130, Cr-Mo and Chromo. It’s a like-for-like replacement for other, identical branded chromoly tubing and ultimately means a saving can be passed onto you via either a healthy price drop or a little more room for up-speccing elsewhere without sacrificing performance.

1x9 Drivetrain

Whilst the simplified, pared-down 1x9 gearing might look like we're scrimping on spec, the reality is that you're paying for the gears you're actaully going to be using. X9 gears, with a perfect urban range that's not too spinny on the flats but with plenty in reserve for those unexpected short, sharp ascents.

XL Mudguards

45mm Chromoplastic mudguards are a custom extended length with the longest mudflaps we could find resulting in excellent coverage - dry toes for you and minimal spray for following riders.

Mechanical disc brakes

Promax DSK-300 mechanical disc brakes are paired with Jagwire KEB-SL compression-less cable outer for optimal braking performance.
