Here’s another reason to attend the Cycle Show this week: Condor Cycles is unveiling four new and updated bikes.
The London-based bike brand’s most popular model is the Fratello touring bike. It has now been updaed to accommodate thru-axles with the disc brakes that were introduced as an option a couple of years ago. The frame is made from Columbus Spirit tubing with all-new rear stays, internal cable routing and wider tyre clearance, it’ll now take up to 32mm tyres with full-length mudguards.
Don’t worry, you can still choose the Fratello with rim brakes.
The Baracchi, a model that has been around for well over a decade, is a carbon fibre endurance bike that is now only available with disc brakes. It accommodates the latest disc brake standards with 12mm thru-axles and flat mount interface callipers, and internal routing.
The achingly beautiful Super Acciaio Disc, one of the very first modern steel race bikes launched back in 2012 that helped kick off a resurgence of highly capable steel bikes, gets a host of updates. The updated Columbus Spirit HSS tubing is joined by a new fork, new CNC machined dropouts and full internal routing for Di2 and EPS.
Lastly, the Bivio Gravel 2.0 is an update to the company’s gravel bike that first launched in 2017. The bike was developed from the Bivio-X cyclocross race bike but modified for gravel and adventure riding. The new incarnation gets a new fork with space for up to 45mm tyres and compatibility with 650b wheels, internal routing for hydraulic hoses, thru-axles and other small updates.
