  • The Skyelander Disc is a British made touring bike hand built by one of England’s top framebuilders, Lee Cooper.

    The lugged frame is built using air hardened Reynolds 631 for the main frame. The stays are Reynolds 631 & 525. The fork blades are disc specific Reynolds 631. An upgrade to Reynolds 853 main frame + 853 fork blades with Reynolds 725 seatstays is an option.

    This frameset comes with a choice of a threaded steerer (1") for a quill stem or a threadless steerer (1 1 /8") for an ahead stem. We recommend the ahead for a number of reasons.

    It's designed with clearance for 35mm tyres with mudguards.

    The frame's relatively long chainstays (450mm or 455mm if big footed) and steel frame make this the ideal companion on a long distance loaded road trip, both strong and comfortable. 

    The Skyelander Disc comes equipped with Shimano XT 10 speed triple chainset (26/36/48) and XT derailleurs, XT disc hubs, TRP RRL drilled hole brake levers, (Microshift bar-end shifters (10 speed) and Nitto heat treated dirt drop bars finished with very comfortable bar tape.

    The bike is fitted with the excellent TRP Spyre mechnical disc brakes on IS mounts coupled with Shimano 160mm rotors and TRP RRL drilled hole levers - we use compressionless cable housing for better braking performance. 

    The wheels are handbuilt using Ryde Andra 321 disc 700c rims on Deore XT hubs, with Marathon Mondial Performance 35c tyres and Schwalbe inner tubes. Other rim and tyres choices are available as upgrades.

    The price includes custom sizing of your frame to best fit you. You can either visit our showroom for a fitting (no extra cost) or send us your measurements. Click here to arrange a fitting or for info on how to take the measurements.

    The frames are lugged for optimal strength, but the frames can also be fillet brazed. We offer both an ahead and quill version. 

    ​It is finished in Dusk Blue (although other colours are available). The frames are double powder coated for increased durability and longevity.
