The perfect companion to the glorious Britannia, the handsome Briton is a lighter specification bicycle offering smooth manoeuvrability and reliability. Perfect for the commuter or gentleman-about-town, the Briton’s classic chainguard and mudguards keep you looking sharp, while the enclosed hub brakes and gears will handle any weather.
Comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of soft cork grips and a hand-made sprung Brooks aged leather saddle, which gradually shapes to your form to become a truly customised and supportive seat. A front dynamo headlamp and rear LED light keep you visible at night, and a sturdy ‘kick-down’ propstand allows you to stand your bicycle upright with ease.
It is a bicycle with real character, perfect as a companion for your commute to work, a weekend jaunt into the countryside, or a quick spin to your local cafe.
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.
