Looking for that ‘one bike’ that will take you almost anywhere, come rain or shine, that you’ll be hard pushed to reach its’ limits, and, most importantly, induce big grins with each and every outing? The Croix de Fer has been doing that for over a decade!
Fast and responsive, yet stable, surefooted and perfectly balanced, the CdF 20 personifies fun on two wheels, paved or unpaved. Without doubt the closest bike in our range fitting the fabled ‘one bike’ mantra.Commuting duties during the week then epic, multi-terrain adventures at the weekend, the Croix De Fer 20 is a capable and adaptable beast of a bike that rarely gets fazed whichever way you point it. Standard QR dropouts mean your 9mm wheelsets can keep turning for another few years ??? and the practicalities don???t end there. A trio of bottle cage mounts and threaded bottom bracket combine to make the Croix de Fer our most practical model. Built from legendary Reynolds 725 steel it has the perfect mix of strength and suppleness to allow you to spend hours, days, weeks or months in the saddle.
