Sling Cycles – Tagati Gravel/Tourer/Commuter/Cross-over

R58,000.00

QUALITIES – ONE BIKE FOREVER

Some of the chief qualities we were looking for and have designed into in our Oscar Bravo Foxtrot offering include –

The pleasure of riding a titanium frame bicycle – offering just the right balance of stiffness and compliance, matched with unrivalled strength and durability. On these counts, there simply is nothing better

A slightly more upright sitting and pedalling position than may be customary (74° seat tube angle, long’ish head tube) – for comfort, stroke strength and ease of breathing.

Slightly slacker than customary (“halfway to mountain bike”) head tube angle (70°) – which provides forgiveness in handling, with speed and comfort over rough surfaces.

Reasonably short seat tube, and resulting low’ish top tube – which make for convenient mounting, dismounting and handling in difficult conditions.

Provision for fitment of the largest in class range of wheel and tyre sizes – from lightning fast, responsive road style to forgiving mountain bike compatible 29 inches, with up to 2.4 inch tyres – offering the plushest, fastest-rolling rough surface riding available in a suspension free bicycle.

A 60 mm bottom bracket drop (large frame) – giving excellent clearance on tricky South African “middle-mannetjie” roads, while retaining fine all-round controllability.

Numerous, carefully located, threaded attachment points – to accommodate different water bottles, travel bags, mud-guards and other accessories complete the package.
