The Wayfarer frame is hand built in our Weymouth workshop, using Reynolds 853 tubing. The use of this 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 Wayfarer Alfine 8 comes with a Shimano Alfine hub. This 8 speed hub has been selected to provide a good range of gears for city use — making it a great fast commuting bike.
Standard gear range 36-109''
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.
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 Schwalbe Marathon Racer 700x35 tyres. They are fast and strong, and have excellent puncture resistance. This is our recommended tyre for all uses.
Cane Creek 40 is a high quality sealed bearing headset. It’s low maintenance, with easy bearing replacement.
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. All fittings are standard for easy replacement of any part.
