|Description||The Monsal is the the second addition to our Workshop Series of frames. These frames are still made by hand in our workshop in the Peak District to the the same quality standard as our custom frames, so if you don't need custom sizing or want any particular details this might be the frame for you. These frames are set sizes and all painted the same colour. If you want something slightly different we can use the Monsal as the starting point for a full custom frame.
The Monsal is our go anywhere road frame. You can build it light and use it for racing or keep it sensible and use it for club runs, commuting and a bit of playing in the woods. It's got plenty of clearance so you can run cross tyres or 28's with guards for commuter comfort.
All the frame details are in the product pictures, but here's a rundown too:
This frame is entirely Reynolds 725 tubing, seamlessly fillet brazed.
The headtube is 44mm top and bottom so you can fit a tapered steerer fork. The frame comes as standard with a Whisky Parts Co No7 Carbon QR Cross fork. This fork is a disc specific, tapered steerer, full carbon cross fork with mudguard mounts. For £100 you can upgrade to the No9 which has a thru axle. Details of the forks can be found on the Whisky website
The rear dropouts mount the brake caliper inside the rear triangle, making it easier to fit mudguards and a rack if required.
Cable routing is under the bottom bracket shell with the rear brake running along the top of the downtube and along the chainstay - there is nothing on the top tube if you need to get it on your shoulder
