Thorn Gravel Bike

Based on the Club Tour, this bike is designed to be a steel framed Gravel bike with added versatility. This bike has all the standard gravel bike features a compact double chain set, wide range rear cassette, drop handlebars, twin disc brakes. However, our offering also features something most Gravel bikes lack, comfort and versatility! Steel frames are inherently more comfortable, you don't constantly worry about damage or cracks like you would with a carbon bike, we've also added an anti-shock stem to counter the slightly stiffer fork we have had to use to accommodate the forces of a disc brake, all of this will make trail buzz a thing of the past. The whole bike is very versatile and could quickly be turned into a fast tourer with the addition of a set of guards and a rack.

  • 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 Mk3R

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.
