Seven models based on two frames in the first range with prices from £550 to £1,300

The HOY range of bikes, a collaboration by the eponymous Sir Chris and Evans Cycles, have finally broken cover with all the details, spec and pricing available on a dedicated website at www.hoybikes.com. The bikes will, naturally, be available to buy through Evans Cycles stores, and online.

We've covered the development of the bikes over the first part of the year, most recently in a blog by designer James Olsen about what it's been like to work with an Olympic legend to create the bikes, but now they're here and we can bring you the full details of the range.

There's two frames – a road frame and an urban frame – and each is available in a number of builds. The Shizuoka urban bike comes in four different builds (001 to 004) priced between £550 and £900 and the Sa Calobra road bike starts at £850 for the 002 with the 004 coming in at £1,300. So there's presently seven bikes, with an eighth (the Sa Calobra 001) imminent and further models (track bikes and kids' bikes) on the way later in the year.

Both of the frames are alloy (6061 T6 for the Shizuoka and 6066 T6 for the Sa Calobra) and feature triple-butted tubes. The road fork is a full-carbon affair with a tapered steerer (1 1/8" to 1 1/2") with the urban range using two forks, an aluminium unit for the lower-priced bikes and a carbon/alloy fork for the 003 and 004. The Shizuoka has a standard 1 1/8" head tube.

All of the urban bikes are disc-equipped and they're hydraulic right down to the £550 Shizuoka 001 which gets Tektro HDC300 stoppers. Tektro's Auriga Pro brakes are used on the top-spec bike. Transmission-wise the Shizuokas use a variety of SRAM flat bar shifters and road transmission parts. On the Sa Calobra it's all Shimano though, with full Ultegra on the 004, 105 on the 003 and Tiagra on the 002. FSA cranks knock a bit off the cost of the build.

To launch the bikes Sir Chris and his Evans entourage will be embarking on a whistlestop tour of the country the week of 17–22 June taking in London, Surrey, Staffordshire, Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow. Ten rides are planned and there'll be an open-to-all ride near Bath on 19 June, details of that are yet to be confirmed. In the evenings Sir Chris will be talking about his new bikes at Evans Stores, with London Mortimer St, Wimbledon, Cardiff, Sheffield, Manchester Chill Factore and Edinburgh the locations. For more info on the bikes head to www.hoybikes.com, and for launch tour dates check out the Evans Cycles site.
