It could be the only bike you ever need

Frames from £1105, Full bikes from £2,550

The latest Stoater is our most accessible bike in the Stoater family. Built with a high spec custom blend tubing from legendary Italian tube manufacturers Columbus and Dedacciai, the latest model retains the ride quality and performance of previous models in the Stoater range.

All of our Stoaters have been designed as versatile bikes at home on road, towpaths, singletrack and pretty much any terrain you can throw at it, this Stoater is no exception. With a full complement of braze-ons and a stable but comfortable ride, the Stoater makes an exceptional performance touring or gravel bike.

We wanted this bike to be an antidote to the uninspiring touring bikes of yesterday. Now you don't have to sacrifice fun and speed for stability and load carrying capabilities. The Stoater, because of the carefully designed geometry and tubeset, gives you everything you want in a predictable, fast tourer.

But versatility is key with this bike, that's why your as likely to see a Stoater doing an Alpine tour in the summer as you are lapping the local 'cross race loop in the winter. The mudguard and rack options make the Stoater the perfect choice for your daily commute too. We find that the bigger, more comfortable tyres also open up some alternative routes into work that you might not have considered. This does mean that you might like to leave for work a little earlier than normal though!

Unless otherwise agreed, all bikes will be setup with 10mm of spacers under the stem. Stem lengths and seatpost types (layback or inline) are frame size specific to enable maximum amount of adjustability. We can provide a dimensioned drawing of final setup on request.
