    You’ll hear a lot of people here say that they’re just overpriced hybrids, but I love mine.
    Couldn’t tell you about the complete bike specs, but try Brixton Cycles for a test ride. That’s where I got mine.

    They look cool to me 🙂

    Any comments about their performance?

    I like mine….

    i live in hill country, so running gears. its not that light, but i need a robust commuter that can take guards and a rack, mash about on and generally give me options on my 10 mile each way commute(1 in 4 hill, cycle track, lanes and town) plus rebuild it as a ss for trips to london. it does all that.

    Use mine for commuting with rack. Not light but solid and comfy. 1×9, rack, guards (winter only) and discs. Also used ss for ‘light’ off road in the past. Would buy again.

    some questions on roadrats…

    Are they as good as they appear?
    How much do they weigh (for example the £585 fully built version)?
    Where can I get a test ride in the south?
    What is the gear ratio?
    Have they got a flip flop hub or are they just single speed?

    Thanks in advance…

    I run mine with a triple chainset, drops, fat tyres and disks. It’s a bit slow on the road, but it’s a hoot off-road.

    The beauty of the RR is that you can build it up as anything from a hybrid commuter to a ‘cross bike. It doesn’t make the fastest road bike or the gnarliest off-roader, but it ain’t too shabby. If you absolutely could only have one frame then it wouldn’t be the worst choice in the world.

    ‘Versatile’ sums it up.
