TRADITIONAL TOURING BIKE

Available in 2 colours and 8 sizes, with 3 steel forks to choose from, including a steel disc fork.

The Club Tour Mk4 is very competitively priced, many customers told us that, with the recommended upgrades, the Mk3 was:

 

“The finest traditional touring bike available, regardless of price!”

 

We know that the Club Tour Mk4 is an even better bike!

The Thorn Club Tour Mk4, was designed without compromise, to show exactly how good a Traditional British Touring Bike can be. It may be used throughout the week to commute to work, it can complete a 200Km Audax (or CTC reliability ride) at the weekend, yet be ready to carry 28Kg on your
annual summer cycle camping holiday. If necessary it will cope with up to 40Kg. You’re guaranteed a high quality ride, with superb handling. The Club Tour Mk4 can even take 40c tyres with mudguards.

  • The Thorn Sherpa

The Thorn Sherpa

The Thorn Sherpa is a 26" derailleur equipped bike, it is intended for use with drop bars or straight bars and depending upon fork, with light to heavy loads.

  • 10 different sizes
  • 1 very small size with medium top tube,
  • 4 sizes with long top tubes,
  • 4 sizes with short top tubes,
  • There’s also a step through size!

We’ve been honing the design for over 15 years, yet the Sherpa could accurately be described as the NEW traditional touring bike.

The Sherpa can be used for day to day transport, or it can literally travel the world.

The Sherpa’s very stable and it handles superbly. There’s no possibility whatsoever of accidentally overlapping feet and mudguards. Whilst the bike is extremely comfortable to ride, it can carry 28Kg of luggage and still handle brilliantly. It will cope with 40Kg when required. (The largest sizes will carry even more).

26” wheels are the best possible choice for heavily loaded touring.

The 26” MTB wheel has a vast variety of different tyres available and tyres for this size are obtainable in every country in the world!

The Sherpa has clearance for 2" tyres. Some 26” tyres are for MTB use, some are heavy duty for expedition use, whilst others are very quick indeed!

We love to cycle on B roads and country lanes. These roads are in worse condition today, than anyone can remember. On these roads, fat tyres, which are zero-maintenance suspension, make great sense. They make just as much sense in the pot-holed streets of today’s cities!

  • The Thorn Audax

The Thorn Audax

The Thorn Audax Mk3R is a 700c derailleur equipped bike, it’s intended primarily for use with drop bars and light to moderate loads. The sizes are not suitable for straight bars.

 Ultra-light touring bike.

 Available in 4 colours and 6 sizes

The Mk3R represents two decades of work, manufacturing and developing, what many people tell us are the finest frames for sporty, lightweight touring, that have ever been built. 

The Audax frames and steel forks run with tyres which measure 31mm and mudguards.

Several owners of exotic racing bikes have reported that their Mk3R, which was purchased for training, is practically as fast and handles better than their race bike - as well as obviously being able to carry a load!

We say that, for occasional use, the Mk3R will cope with 20Kg of luggage, spread between the rear carrier, the 3 bottle cages and a small bar bag.

The Mk3R is much happier to carry up to 14Kg and it excels with loads up to 8Kg.

If you regularly carry more than 8kg, we strongly advise that you look at the Club Tour.

The Thorn Raven Twin Tandem

There’s no standard specification of Raven Twin Tandem.

Even at the start price, there are many different choices you must make. (With the exception of the size #8 and with the exception of pump bar ends and pedals - the machines, have specifications which are available at the start price.)

Helpful advice is always available from our bike sales team, if you require it. There are no duff components anywhere on a Raven Tandem, we supply a very high quality headset, good quality bottom brackets and reliable chains. You couldn’t find higher quality chain rings anywhere. We use only the finest cables and we don’t skimp on the tyres, tubes or rim tapes either. Mudguards are included at the start price - pedals, pumps bar ends and carriers are not.

You may choose your own personal specification.

Starting from £3,149
