We’ve just been sent news that Hove based Prestige Cycles has become the sole UK importer for Dekerf Cycles. Yup, that’s right, the legendary, handbuilt Canadian steel hardtails are back in the UK. Here’s the lowdown on the Dekerf Team SST hardtail…
“Though the Concorde has been grounded, the SST will keep you flying down the singletrack in a fashion to which you will enjoy becoming accustomed. This frame is the fourth version of our flagship steel XC hard tails.
From the ‘Team’ of the early 90’s, through the ‘Team SL’, to the ‘Team 853’, tried and true steel bikes have been the mainstay here at Dekerf Cycle Innovations. Our Team SST is no exception to that tradition. This Team is fabricated from the latest iteration of Reynolds custom-drawn and butted 853 chrome manganese air-hardening Size-Specific Tubes, hence SST.
Our flagship Team SST frames combine the best features of previous models like: our trademark wishbone, machined head tube and downtube gusset, with several new ones like the ‘zip’ style mounting for disk brakes and a custom machined Dekerf seat post clamp.
A new name; a frame for the ages.
