With its movie star looks and 8-speed Alfine hub gears, the Countryman is the perfect bicycle for the discerning urban gentlemen rider. Built for manoeuvrability about town, the Countryman’s lighter construction and full-length mudguards make it the perfect commuter cycle – in all weathers. The Countryman is the ideal companion to the Aurora.
Hand-built from the very best Reynolds 531 steel tubing, the Countryman features narrow, lightweight Mavic alloy rims and flat, swept handlebars with a slight curve specifically designed to give an efficient and comfortable ride. The Countryman is even suited to long-distance touring, equipped with a classic Brooks B17 leather saddle that naturally shapes to your form, high performance dual pivot brakes and braze-ons for a rear luggage rack.
It is this huge adaptability that makes the Countryman a unique proposition, being both versatile in its design and unrivalled in its quality; a true all-rounder that will give you many years of reliable and pleasurable cycling.
Demand has been high and the 24.5" variant of this model is currently sold out. However, new bicycles are due for delivery to Blackwell and Sons in September. We recommend reserving yours in advance to avoid disappointment.
