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.
