Shimano Claris Drivetrain Driving the Technique forward is a Shimano Claris drivetrain. The 2x8 drivetrain consists of Claris shifters and derailleurs, with an 11-28t cassette. Up front is a Suntour chainset with a compact chainring setup. All these working together offer the classic Shimano indexing that we all know and love. Joytech/Alex Wheelset Keeping the Technique rolling is a pair of Alex R500 double walled 32h alloy rims laced up to a set of Joytech alloy hubs, these are then wrapped in a set of Continental Ultra Sport II tyres. Overall these are a fast rolling, light-weight wheelset with the tyres offering maximum grip allowing you can pace your way through the streets and roads at a steady speed. Tektro Dual Pivot Brakes Shimano Claris shifter/lever paired up with Tektro R312 dual pivot caliper brakes offer a brilliant braking performance allowing you to flow through the roads with confidence that you can stop when needed. Finishing Kit Finishing the Technique off is a alloy 75mm reach bar, a 3D forged stem, Single bolt alloy 27.2mm seatpost and a Cosine road specific saddle. A great, light-weight finishing kit to top the Technique off.
Road Bike Deals
I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
