The Speed 5 is inspired by the spirit of historic, record-breaking speed endeavours when racers were gentlemen rather than professionals, when prizes were noble rather than fiscal. It is a lively performer, possessing an understated personality and style, ready to serve the more dynamic rider.
The Speed 5 is our tribute to the heyday of gentlemanly British cycle racing. This was a time when riders would come together in the noble pursuit of record-breaking times with only the satisfaction and thrill of success for reward. It embodies all that was great about this era, allowing you to follow in the footsteps of these men in your own exciting cycling endeavours.
The British racing green and gold colour scheme hints at this heritage, as does the frame-mounted number plate, and the traditionally slack frame geometry gives a dynamic riding position for maximum speed and performance. This sense of lineage is bolstered by hand-built quality - every Speed 5 is meticulously constructed by our dedicated craftsmen from legendary Reynolds 531 steel to produce a bicycle that will last a lifetime. The quality of construction is matched by the components we have chosen for this most special of cycles. The wide diameter Sturmey Archer hub brakes allow you to brake late for corners and have ultimate control over your speed, and the classic Brooks Swift leather saddle gradually forms to your shape for a high level of comfort and full range of movement.
The Speed 5 is not simply a revival of path racing tradition but an advancement of the sport, embodying the principles of the early pioneers with a refined design they would be truly proud of.
|Frame Size||Inside Leg Length||Stand-over height|
|24.5"|| 33-37.5"||35.5" (DTT)|
The SPEED 5 comes in three 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 SPEED 5 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.
