Allez allez allez for the first hoy bikes

Sir Chris Hoy has been road testing his range of bikes created in conjunction with Evans Cycles. Available in May there will be 7 in total consisting of 3 road bikes and 4 city bikes. The frames are built from 6061 aluminium or 6066 aluminium on the 2 high end versions. In the future there will be carbon models too and there’s talk of a steel Keirin bike.

The entry level road bike will cost £850 and comes with Shimano Tiagra, the next model up gets you Shimano 105 gearing with RS10 wheels, the 6066 frame and a carbon fork. The top road bike costs £1350 and comes with Shimano Ultegra components and Mavic Aksium wheel-set.

The city bikes start from £550 and that will get you a 1×8 Sram X4, disc brakes and 6061 alloy frame and fork. 1×10 Sram X5 gearing is added onto the £650 model, another £100 adds a carbon fork, 2×10 X5/8x gearing, and upgraded disc brakes. The top model gets 2×10 X7/Rival and upgraded brakes.
