Halfords to sell old-school Euro-style bikes

Steel frames plus three-speed Sturmey Archer

UK retail group Halfords today added two new bikes to their range, under the name Real Classics.


With a decidedly European look, the steel-framed bikes have Sturmey Archer three-speed hub gears, V-brakes, pannier racks and colour-co-ordinated mud- and chainguards.

Aimed at the recreational cyclist, the bikes continue the current trend of the ‘don’t look like a cyclist’ ranges we’ve reported on – from Madison, bspoke and Topshop.


With a relaxed geometry and space for a wicker basket, Halfords hope the £249.99 bikes will be a hit with the fashionable crowd when they go on sale on 23 May 2009.
