It's not MTB, but it is wild.
Condor has gone all-in for The Cycle Show, launching a fleet of new bikes in Birmingham, including the freshly-updated Fratello Disc. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The Fratello is Condor’s best-selling frame – it’s a real all-rounder, employed variously as an all-weather commuter, winter bike, touring bike or simply something to blast about the lanes on. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The new Fratello Disc has 12mm thru-axles at the front and rear, and now accepts the flat-mount disc brake standard. Claimed weight for a painted 55cm frame is 1,960g. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The Fratello has all the fixtures and fittings you’d expect of a versatile steel frame. It’s ready for mudguards and a rack, and has clearance for 32mm tyres with guards. The frameset costs £1,199.99. Jack Luke/Immediate Media Condor’s gravel bike, the Bivio, was launched in 2017 and has been updated to offer additional tyre clearance. Jack Luke/Immediate Media There’s now room for 42mm tyres with 700c wheels, as well as compatibility for 650b wheels with 47mm tyres. The Columbus steel frame has a new carbon fork, plus thru-axles at the front and rear. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The 2020 Bivio has modular routing for electronic or mechanical groupsets. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The finish is very smart indeed. Jack Luke/Immediate Media Condor’s iconic crest adorns the top tube. Jack Luke/Immediate Media Claimed weight for a 55cm painted frame made from custom triple-butted Columbus steel is 2,100g. The fork weighs 350g. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The Bivio frameset costs £1,399.99 but you can also put together your own build through the Condor website. Jack Luke/Immediate Media Also new from Condor is the updated Super Acciaio Disc. The steel race bike took home our Best in Show: Road Bike award at The Cycle Show. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The Columbus Spirit HSS tubeset is paired with a new carbon fibre fork, gets internal routing compatibility for electronic groupsets and now features CNC-machined thru-axle dropouts. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The quality of the finish is exquisite. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The Super Acciaio Disc is made in Italy and will set you back £1,899.99 for the frameset. Jack Luke/Immediate Media The Leveret is new from Scottish brand Shand. While Shand’s steel frames are normally made-to-order in Livingston, the Leveret is a stock frame made in Taiwan. George Scott/Immediate Media Shand says the Leveret is a response to customer requests for a feature-packed, all-weather bike for commuting. That means you get a triple-butted chromoly steel frame and a maintenance-free Gates Carbon Drive CDX drivetrain. George Scott/Immediate Media The Leveret has 8-speed Shimano Alfine hub gears, paired with Microshift bar-end shifters. TRP Hylex hydraulic disc brakes provide the stopping power. George Scott/Immediate Media These Schwalbe G-One tyres should provide a good balance of speed, comfort and grip. The Leveret will cost £1,895 when it lands in February 2020, while a mudguard and rack accessory pack will also be available. George Scott/Immediate Media Vielo teased the R+1 earlier this year but The Cycle Show gave us the opportunity to see it in the flesh. The R+1 follows Vielo’s V+1 all-road bike and is an aero, 1x-specific carbon frame with clearance for 30mm tyres. George Scott/Immediate Media Vielo claims the R+1 is 30 per cent stiffer than a 2x frame thanks to the increased bottom bracket width afforded by the 1x-specific design. The broad BB shell transitions into a symmetrical down tube with Kammtail aero shaping. George Scott/Immediate Media Focusing the lower half of the frame on stiffness has apparently allowed Vielo to build more comfort into the seatstays through the extended flat section seen here. At the very least, it’s somewhere to put your coffee cup at the cafe. George Scott/Immediate Media The R+1 is also designed specifically for SRAM’s wireless eTap groupsets, so there are no ports for cables or wires. It certainly looks aero… George Scott/Immediate Media The flagship R+1 UD frameset will set you back a cool £3,999 when it becomes available in April next year. The R+1 UDG uses a more affordable grade of carbon fibre to drop the price to £2,699. George Scott/Immediate Media The Ribble HT Ti broke cover earlier this year and is now available. The triple-butted 3AL/2.5 titanium frame is Ribble’s first MTB chassis for many a year (the brand is best-known for its road bikes). The chassis has a slack and long geometry and is available in builds from £2,699 with SRAM NX Eagle. George Scott/Immediate Media Even newer from Ribble is this HT 725, launched at The Cycle Show. In fact, this scooped our Editor’s Choice prize in the BikeRadar Awards. It pairs a progressive geometry with Reynolds 725 steel tubing. Builds start from £1,399. Jack Luke/Immediate Media We showed you the updated Genesis Fugio earlier this year but it’s certainly worth another look. The frame is now made from Reynolds 725 steel and wears Shimano’s GRX gravel groupset in its single-ring setup. Yours for £2,699.99. George Scott/Immediate Media The 2019 Cycle Show gave us the opportunity to check out the latest road, gravel and mountain bikes from British brands Condor, Shand, Vielo, Ribble and Genesis. The UK’s biggest cycling showcase opened to the public on Friday, but we got a sneak peek during the press and trade preview. BikeRadar Awards winners announced at 2019 Cycle Show Condor brought a range of new bikes to The Cycle Show, including the updated Fratello Disc all-rounder, Bivio gravel bike and Super Acciaio Disc steel race bike. Meanwhile, we got a first look at Shand’s all-new commuter, the Leveret, and Vielo’s 1x-specific R+1. Ribble’s new steel hardtail, the HT 725, was also on display in Birmingham, while the revamped Fugio took centre stage on Genesis’ stand. The Cycle Show is open until Sunday (15 September) and you can get money off advance tickets by using the discount code BRADAR. Head to The Cycle Show website for more information.
