The 'Flash' is based on a hand-built strong and sturdy yet responsive double-butted Cromoly Frame. The frame has a sloping top tube and extra stack on the steerer and seat tube to allow for a comfortable position while keeping the main frame triangle relatively small to ensure rigidity when fully loaded.
The 'Flash' is set-up with the newest version of the all-time classic Shimano 105 R7000 11-Speed Groupset. The 105 is Shimano's most affordable offering of its top-class groupsets. And thanks to Shimano's trickle-down technology philsophy, it shares many similarities with the mechanical versions of Ultegra and Dura-Ace providing smooth and fast shifting. The Brakes are mechanical TRP Spyres, a favourite among cyclocross racers and a perfect compromise of reliable stopping power and easy maintenance. The wheels are handbuilt with wide Mavic XM319 32 hole rims to provide rigidity and comfort even when the bike is fully loaded. The wheels are paired with german-made Continental Tyres which offer a high level of puncture protection.
The 'Flash' is equipped with heavy-duty Tubus racks made of lightweight steel tubing. The steel tubing construction makes them less prone to deformation compared to most other racks which are made of solid aluminum rods. Having a lowrider rack in the front and a traditional rack in the back means that you can distribute your luggage evenly across the bike. This in turn ensures stability on fast descends, when pedalling out of the saddle and on rough terrains.
To keep you dry in all weather conditions, the 'Flash' is equipped with adjustable SKS mudguards made in Germany.
Another essential for a veritable Touring Bike is lighting. This box is checked by the reliable Shimano Alfine Hub Dynamo which powers the BUSCH & MÜLLER front and rear light to ensure your visibility during night rides and in tunnels.
The finishing kit consists of oversized Deda Zero 1 parts which look great and help to prevent flex when the bike is fully loaded.
As you can see, the 'Flash' provides anything a cyclist needs and more. In view of all these rational arguments, we decorated the frame with decals inspired by race bikes from the golden era. In doing so, we hope that the bike does not only appeal to your head but also to your heart.
