Frame & Forks

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.

Gearing

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 14 as it’s the ideal feature for the ultimate commuter or global adventurer.

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. They give superb braking without the drag or rubbing of other mechanical discs, and are reliable in all weathers.

Brakes

Wheels & Tyres

Hand-built in our workshop, on Hope hubs 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.

The Wayfarer 14 Speed

From £2,900

Frame & Forks £1250

The Wayfarer is our version of the traditional British light touring bike but updated for today’s use.  This 14-speed option features a Rohloff hub — the ultimate touring hub gearset, favoured for its world class reliability.

Built using ‘oversized’ Reynolds 853 tubing, this bike is sporty without being extreme; making it ideal for fast commuting and light touring. So, if you’re racing into work one day, and riding through the Normandy Forest the next, this is the bike for you.

The Wayfarer, was the pen name of journalist Walter MacGregor Robinson, a pioneer of rough stuff cycle touring in the years following WW1; our Wayfarer is a tribute to his adventurous spirit. 

When building this bike, we’ve used high-quality components as standard; a breakdown of each key element is listed on this page. Once you’ve had a read through, if you would like to customise your Wayfarer, please use the Customise Your Bike feature, below, to see what other options are available.
