Bikepacking pics are of the frame, forks, wheels, gears but not precise spec as in sale – these will follow asap!

Hi Folks,

The time has come to indulge my drop-bar hankering and make space for a new arrival.

A rigid single-speed by design and bonafide cult classic, Fortitude and I have shared many a mile munching adventure. We both have scars to show but neither are ready for the museum quite yet ;-)

Currently it’s set up with a White Industries single-speed freewheel and 100mm Reba RL forks. The original rigid steel fork and everything to run it geared including Hope Pro 2 wheel, thru axle, DMR dropout hanger, XT ten speed mech and shifter will be included in the sale.

Ideal adventurer, tasteful pub bike or cherry popper for the single-speed curious.

Cash on collection in Peebles preferable but postage can be arranged.
