2016 Hoy Alto Irpavi .004 Frame
The Alto Irpavi receives its name from the high altitude velodrome where Sir Chris broke the 500m world record. Sir Chris never needed brakes when on the track, but they certainly come in use when riding near his home in the Peak District! Equipped with disc brakes, the Alto Irpavi benefits from reliable stopping power in all conditions. The triple-butted 6066 aluminium frame with frame-size specific tubing is lightweight with a focus on stiffness-to-weight rather than lowest weight at all costs and it remains comfortable due to the bridgeless seat stays and thin-wall main frame. The geometry has been refined to maximise the speed that good discs and sure-tracking through-axle dropouts allow while retaining the inspiring handling feel that made the Hoy Sa Calobra such a popular bike.

This deal was originally found at Evans Cycles website, a bike shop which can trace it's roots back nearly 100 years! Evans Cycles is a London based chain of cycle shops, complete with an extensive online shop. Founded in 1921 by Frederick Evans in Kennington Road, SE London, the business traded for 30 years before being acquired by Joseph Smith in the 1950s, selling a range of cycles and toys. By the 1970s, focus was diverted solely to bicycles and cycling related equipment, and in the following years several franchised shops were opened. These were later brought back under the control of the main Evans company in the 1990s, at which point the famous Evans mail order catalogue was launched, complete with the traditional green and yellow colour scheme. With the growth of the internet, a website was launched in 1999 to help increase sales further, the latest incarnation of which can be found at www.evanscycles.com.
Since the early 2000s' the company has been steadily expanding, regularly opening new stores each year. By 2012, Evans employs 1100 members of staff, and currently has over 50 stores in the UK, making it one of the biggest cycle retailers in the country. In addition to selling a wide range of popular brands, Evans has also produced product ranges under "Pinnacle" and also currently has an exclusive deal with the "Hoy" brand.
