The Wayfarer frame is hand-built in our Weymouth workshop, using Reynolds 853 tubing. The top-of-the-range, air-hardened steel, with oversized tubes, gives 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.
The Rohloff 14-speed hub is the ultimate touring hub gearset, favoured for its world class reliability and huge gear range. It’s a great fit with The Wayfarer as it’s the ideal feature for the ultimate commuter or global adventurer.
Standard gear range 20-105''
We’ve selected, as standard, TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes with dual actuation. These are the best mechanical discs out there at the moment. They give superb braking without the drag or rubbing of other mechanical discs, and are reliable in all weathers.
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.
We’ve fitted Schwable Marathon Racer 700x35 tyres because they are fast and strong, and have excellent puncture resistance. This is our recommended tyre for all uses.
From the SKS mudguards to the Biotech gel saddle, every element of The Wayfarer’s finishing kit has been chosen with long-life and repairability in mind.
We use Fizik Cyrano R5 bars, stem and seatpost for reliability and choice of sizes.
