  • The Stanforth Conway is designed for touring at pace; a speedy trans-continental tour or a weekend road trip. It is constructed in the UK using Reynolds 853 steel, has bosses for front (with steel fork only) and rear racks and mudguards, and has clearance for wider tyres than both a regular road or cyclocross bike.

    The hand built fillet brazed frame gives the right combination of strength, weight and comfort. The bike is powered by a Shimano 105 transmission and TRP Spyre disc brakes provide the stopping power. Please note some of the above photos show the Shimano 105 5800 + Ultegra 6800 derailleur - we are now fitting the latest R7000 105 groupset.

    The Whisky carbon fork is an optional upgrade.

    Why is it called the Conway? Over the last few years we have been big fans of Sean Conway; a true adventurer, but importantly a specialist in lightweight bike touring. Stanforth Bikes have collaborated with Sean to ensure the Stanforth Conway is a bike that meets the needs of the long distance tourer who wants to travel at pace without heavy loaded panniers. It’s equally at home on a local club ride as it is on a trans-continental tour.

    The frame is hand built in England. It is fillet brazed using a mid-gauge of Reynolds 853, so a light but strong air hardened and heat treated steel. Mid-gauge means it’s still lighter than the 853 ATB tubing but stronger than the road 853 spec – this is designed for lighter weight baggage as opposed to fully loaded panniers – see the Skyelander or Kibo for loaded touring bikes.

    The Conway comes equipped with a Shimano 105 2 x 11 transmission with 105 STI’s, 105 34-50 chainset, 105 front derailleur, 105 11-34 cassette and rear derailleur. The disc brakes are TRP Spyre with 160mm rotors. The DT Swiss R460 DB rims hand built onto Bitex 32 hole centrelock disc hubs. The rest of the components are high spec including heat treated Nitto drops, a Brooks Cambium C17 saddle and Marathon Racer 35mm tyres. For tours or adventures where you’ll be tackling bad road conditions or gravel we also offer the Panaracer Gravel King 43mm as an option (please note with 43mm tyres mudguard won't be fitted).

    It is finished in a choice of Bahama Gold or Ash Green, or any of our stock colours, or for an extra charge one of our custom colours. The frames are double powder coated for increased durability and longevity.
