The Briton has its own a colourful character, providing you with a fun and enjoyable ride experience, enhanced by its traditional sprung leather saddle and comfortable, upright riding style.
A worthy companion to our well-regarded Britannia bicycle, the ‘Briton’ is a 5 speed model coming in a choice of classic Oxford Blue or Oxblood, with striking cream tyres. It takes inspiration from our flagship Roadster bicycle, but with a lighter specification and a slightly more relaxed riding style.
The classic chainguard and mudguards keep you clean and looking your best, whilst the reliable hub brakes and gears are effective no matter what the weather conditions. Comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of soft cork grips and a hand-made sprung Brooks aged leather saddle - made only thirty miles from our factory - which gradually shapes to your form to become a truly customised and supportive seat. A front dynamo headlamp and rear LED light keeps you visible at night, and a sturdy ‘kick-down’ propstand allows you to stand your bicycle upright with ease.
It is a bicycle with real character, perfect as a companion for your commute to work, a weekend jaunt into the countryside, or a quick spin to your local cafe. The term ‘Briton’ has roots in the iron age yet reflects a modern and inclusive culture and joins the range firmly flying the flag for our traditional craftsmanship and manufacturing here in Stratford-upon-Avon.
|Frame Size||Inside Leg Length||Stand-over height|
|24.5"|| 33-37.5"||35.5" (DTT)|
* 20" frame is fitted with 26" wheels.
The Briton comes in four frame sizes shown in the table, followed by their corresponding inside leg length range and stand-over height.
The frame size is the distance between the centrepoint of the cycle's bottom bracket (where the pedal arms extend from) and the top of the frame's seat tube (where the seatpost enters the frame).
Leg length should be measured from the sole of your foot to the inner top of your thigh (in inches) - please note that this is a different measurement to your trouser inside leg length. If your inside leg length falls in-between two frame sizes and you are unsure which size is best for you, please visit our Sizing Page for further guidance.
DTT stands for 'double top-tube', where an additional top-tube has been added to the frame.
The stand-over height is the height from the ground to the top of the top-tube. The Briton has a higher than average top-tube ("stand-over") and bottom bracket height. If your inside leg is at the lower end of a frame-size range, you may need to support yourself on tip-toe when stopping on your bicycle.
