VERENTI SUBSTANCE SORA
It looks like an entry level cyclo- cross bike but Verenti says the Substance is designed to be “a bit of fun around town, a sturdy commuter and a weekend rambler”. And it is. The wide gearing has every situation covered, though the 9-speed cassette is a bit gappy. The 32mm tyres ensure comfort. The Substance makes short work of anything that city riding can throw at it and it’s brilliant value for money.
