New for 2021, our top-tier CDA matches a great specification at an even better price. Our aluminium frameset is again the centrepiece for this versatile build.
Suited to commuting, utility, touring, road and gravel, the CDA is no less adaptable than our flagship Croix de Fer, from which it takes inspiration.
Somehow, we’ve managed to add Shimano’s excellent GRX gearing making this CDA the one if you’re planning to head straight off the beaten track.
Just add some bikepacking bags and you’ll be off, wherever the route takes you! Beaten up B-roads, bridleways, byways and everything in between, the CDA will tackle it with a grin.
Of course, being a CDA, there won’t be any complaints if it’s used as a winter road bike, resplendent in full-length mudguards – or even a posh commuter with panniers fitted.
Impeccable manners that threaten to outshine our original Croix de Fer, as the student becomes the master!
