Product Description

The perfect ride to explore a Brave New World…

Taking the classic path racer style that 8Ball has championed to it’s natural extension, Huxley is a lugged steel (Columbus Zona) road frameset kitted out with quality modern or retro components.

Our own preference is the classic styling featuring a groupset by Japanese component specialists Dia Compe, in the Gran Compe Zero offering, which marries old school looks with modern technology. To keep with the authentic styling however we have non aero brake cable routing and bar end friction shifters on the Velo Orange Randonneur handlebars, which keep the Halo Retro 6D wheelset spinning.

Topped off with honey coloured leather bar tape and a Brooks leather touring saddle, this machine is designed for exploring long, winding roads and enjoying the great outdoors.

Of course, you may prefer index shifting, a full Campagnolo, Shimano or Sram groupset and a different paint job. We can sort that too.
