Frame & Forks

The Roadster frame is hand-built in our Weymouth workshop, using Reynolds 631 tubing for its strong, lightweight properties. These air-hardened oversized steel tubes give the stiffness required for loaded use, while still remaining light and sporty for unladen use.

All of our frames and forks are individually built to order so you should expect to receive your Sven Cycle within four to six weeks of placing your order.

Gearing

The Roadster Alfine 8 comes with a Shimano Alfine hub. We’ve chosen this 8-speed hub as it offers a good range of gears for city use — making it a great fast commuting bike.

Gear range from 35-105''.

Brakes

We’ve selected, as standard, TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes with dual actuation. These are the best mechanical discs out there at the moment and offer really reliable braking in any weather, even with a full load.

Wheels & Tyres

Hand-built in our workshop, with a Hope front hub and DT rims, these wheels are strong and light. Stainless steel, double-butted spokes, further enhance their strength.

650B x 42 tyres give a smooth, fast ride.

Roadster Alfine 8
Daily Commuter

From £1,700

Frame & Forks £1000

The Roadster Alfine 8 is a relaxed, enjoyable ride with a sporty look and feel. A very adaptable, low maintenance bike, this is a great commuter for town or country.

This is our take on the traditional British Roadster ‘daily commute’ bicycle, inspired by its upright riding position and swept-back bars, which deliver an easy, relaxed ride. This was the bike people rode to work on all week, and then took off to the countryside on at weekends. 

We’ve kept all of that character, but brought it right up to date for the modern cyclist. Key features include TRP Spyre brakes that are reliable in all weathers and conditions, and Dynamo hub lighting to give excellent visibility, both in the city and on unlit country lanes.  

To add an extra bit of excitement, why not select the Compass lightweight tyre option and turn this bike into a speed weapon that goes much quicker than it should?
