What are the back sto­ries?

Cycling Plus - - FIRST RIDE -

‘A tour­ing bike de­signed with long ad­ven­tures in mind… help­ing you cover the miles with ease.’ The Flat White comes from the same com­pany that dis­trib­utes Shi­mano and fea­tures a clas­sic-look­ing 4130 chro­moly frame with lugs. And we love lugs. The skinny steel fork prom­ises com­fort, but can a bud­get tourer re­ally de­liver ad­ven­tures? ‘De­signed in a work­shop in Hert­ford­shire’ on a bike ‘which is ideal for UK con­di­tions’, this has an un­der­stated, largely matt-black 6061 alu­minium frame and a car­bon fork with alu­minium steerer. This makes it one of the least ex­pen­sive ‘proper’ road bikes you can buy, but it still has in­ter­nal ca­ble rout­ing and a largely Shi­mano driv­e­train.
