Direct from the Brodie website - "The Remus is an easy choice for the minimalists in the crowd. A natural single speed out of the box, the rear flip flop hub lets you choose to run with the fixed gear crowd. A cromoly frame, slick reach-adjustable brake levers and high flange hubs make the Remus more than just a looker at a very wallet friendly price."
I picked up one of these for use as my daily commuting bike, and after a few modifications (which can be seen in the photos below) and a few longer rides I am happy to say that this machine is very fine indeed! I elected to set mine up with a more upright position, full fenders, and fixed/brakeless. Here are the changes I made:
- removal of stock bars, stem, brakes, and pedals
- addition of Velo Orange hammered fenders, Velo Orange bars, Cardiff leather Balmoral grips, and my own wheelset with a 15/18 fixed cogs.
With a MSRP of $699, this bike is a very affordable option for those looking for a great handling road bike, but with classic touches, and impeccable quality afforded by Brodie. There are so many way to customize this ride - maybe adding an IGH of one sort or another, or simply putting on a riser bar for a more upright position - the possibilities are endless.
We have a few in stock right now, so when you have some time, come on down and check these great bikes out.
See ya out there!
