Gt Tachyon 1.0

Just what is a flat bar road bike.

Hybrid bikes have been becoming increasingly popular over the past 10 years or so. At first they were much the same as the current flat bar road bikes, but then a gradual transition occurred, and they became heavier, slower and more comfortable, with a more upright seating position and plush ride. The emphasis has been on comfort over previous years and has paved the way the the introduction of a light fast, comfortable (yes still comfortable) bicycle with flat bars for better rider control. The flat bar road bike concept is actually ideal for a commuting bike. When negotiating traffic, gutters, potholes and occasionally the pedestrian who forgets to look for a bike, the immediate access to brilliant braking can be an absolute blessing. All the controls are at your fingertips,  so gear-changing, braking and steering are immediate.

The Tachyon 1.0 is the 2014 version of a flat bar road bike. A lightweight hydroformed aluminium frame is at the heart of this bike and when coupled to a carbon fibre front fork and fitted with quality parts the result is one very swift commuter bike. The gears are the tried and proven Shimano Sora 9speed and these in combination with ShimanoSora triple cranks provide a more than adequate gear range for most riders in any area. Fitted with disc brake wheel-set to improve both performance and braking, then have the rugged Kenda KWest tyres, the ride and reliability is fantastic. Other featured parts are the super comfortable bio-morphic saddle and decent pedals.

The bike is finished with a really tough outer coating to provide a bike that will look new for several years. The frame is setup to take racks and mudguards if so desired. The bike comes with GT's lifetime frame warranty and Shimano's 2 year parts warranty. To ensure trouble free cycling we provide2 free services. over a period of 12 months.
