The Remus, above, takes the same butted Chromoly steel tubing from their used-to-be-a-cyclocross bike Romulus and welds it into a simple single speed road bike.Ã‚Â The Remus comes with a flip-flop rear wheel, so you can run it as a fixie or keep it as-is.Ã‚Â For $699, you get the complete bike with Chromoly fork, Brodie-brand seatpost, bar and stem, Tektro brakes, Suntour cranks, Wellgo pedals and Formula hubs laced to Kore rims with Kenda tires.
Hit ‘more’ to see the rest of the new stuff…
The 2010 Romulus takes what used to be a cyclocross bike and becomes a straight up roadie.Ã‚Â Same double-butted Chromoly steel tubing and fork as the Remus, but it adds some gears via a Truvativ IsoFlow triple crankset, Shimano hubs, shifters, cassette and derailleurs, Alex rims and Kenda tires.Ã‚Â MSRP is $799.
Stepping over to commuter and up to better spec, the Tesla is a new bike for 2010.Ã‚Â It’s designed for serious commuting with a Shimano 105 group and hydraulic disc brakes and Race Face handlebar, stem and seatpost with a WTB SST saddle.Ã‚Â The wheels use Shimano hubs with Mavic A-319 rims and Kenda 25c tires.Ã‚Â It has the same double-butted Chromoly steel frame as their Ronin and Romax cyclocross bikes. MSRP is $1,499.
The 2010 Brodie Dissident gets a lot of updates, which we covered in greater detail (with some sweet action photos) in a prior post.Ã‚Â Suffice to say it’s a serious descender with more XC-oriented geometry and handling, giving you a true multipurpose mountain bike.Ã‚Â Main updates include a new 1.5″ headtube and mandrel shaped tubing.Ã‚Â MSRP is $2,999.
Back to commuters, the Drifter is a commuter bike that could double as a mountain bike by throwing some knobbies on it.Ã‚Â It’s a double-butted Chromoly frame with rigid Chromoly disc fork spec’d with a full Shimano drivetrain, hubs and hydraulic disc brakes, Brodie bar, stem and post, WTB saddle and Kenda 26 x 1.95 tires.Ã‚Â MSRP is $1,099.
Starting off the Express Series of commuter bikes is the Cohort.Ã‚Â Its geometry (like the Drifter) is set up for snappy urban handling that can also be ridden offroad.Ã‚Â For $699, the Cohort delivers with the same frame and fork as the Drifter, but gets Tektro mechanical disc brakes, a Shimano drivetrain and Brodie bar, stem and post.
