If you look at the picture of the white Metropole below you will see a red touring bike in the background. It’s a handbuilt Reynolds 531 Allin. It’s got a 5 speed Sturmey archer hub and a very nice Mafac brake set.
It’s a 52cm and it’s bloody gorgeous.
We also have a blue Reynolds 531 handbuilt Allin tourer, but with dérailleur gears.
Fitted with a Brooks titanium rail saddle, mudguards and front and back racks this bad boy is rearing to go. He is 52cm and has also been built using Reynolds 531.
If you are in the market for a touring bike (which you should be because touring is ace) please feel free to come by and take these 2 for a test ride, they are both incredible, I don’t envy someone trying to choose between the 2.
