This bike was built up and refurbished by myself from an up old frame I bought on ebay. I had already built up my Falcon San remo into a single speed but having spent so much time on that bike I wanted another everyday single-spaced that I didn’t mind using in all weather. This is why the Claud Butler is a vintage frame with modern components. It is ridden 20 miles every day in rain, wind and snow and is a great training bike as although it is Reynolds 531 Steel with Nervex lugs, its quite heavy compared to a modern bike so really works the legs.
