Sabbath Silk Route Titanium Touring Bike.

£1799 ono.

Size Large/ 56cm

Bright brush finish with laser etched logo.

Reluctant sale, a change in circumstances means it has to go!

The bike has been built as a Ultra-lightweight Touring/ Audax/ Sportive/ Fast commuter bike. The frame has been designed to handle heavy weight touring (m6 rack fixings, 3x b. cage mounts etc) Everything else has been specced to keep the weight down but still be dependably strong.
All of the frame prep has been done; Headtube faced & reamed, BB faced, all threads chased etc..Everything fitted with Ti prep/ Fibre-grip etc.. All fixings, cables stainless etc.. Bike was assembled at Velocity Bikes in Portsmouth. Shimano Ultegra groupset throughout.

Bike has covered less than 500 miles, everything in v. good condition.. Frame is built to last a lifetime. Hubs & Headset recently serviced. Standard Bike retails for £1799 with basic spec/ heavy steel fork etc (frame alone RRP £1200) so grab a bargain..Really comfortable bike to ride, flies up hills too!
