Size? (Frame, clothing, wheel size etc. You can pick 3)
Collection only

£400 Genesis High Latitude Singlespeed – perfect for winter.


Reynolds 520 in a lovely bronze finish. This is the version which runs SS, or geared with an Alfine hub. Size M, 17.5” from centre of BB to top of seat tube. £200 F+F if necessary, it’s set up how I like it:

Truvativ Stylo cranks from the parts bin, 32*18 transmission.

Stans Notubes ZTR Arch EX (currently set up with tubes).

Geax Gato tyres (and I like ’em; will swap for something wintrier and beefier if you prefer).

Rockshox Recon with remote lockout.

Avid BB7 cable disc brakes (because they’re easy to fix and to maintain, even if not as powerful as hydros).

El Guapo stem, risers and seatpost.

Original LoveMud Sonder saddle (it is shaped like my bum, I’m happy to swap to a flatter Selle San Marco).


Built for long days in the Dales and Moors, or gravelly bikepacking, it excels at both. This summer I took it to the Lakes (Back o’ Skiddaw), Borrowdale, Ullswater) and it’s surprisingly fun and nimble on the bumpy stuff.
