Giant Peloton Superlite with SRAM Rival 56cm (SOLD)Bikes / Road Bike
Lately we’ve been getting excited about grouping new components with frames from our collection. This beautiful 90′s Giant Peloton has had a makeover, newly equipped with a brand new 10 speed groupset. We love the idea of giving older frames a new lease on life with an upgrade to modern shifting and braking.
This bike runs a new Sram Rival Groupset, a big feature of which is the double-tap shifters, a pleasure to use, always finding the right gear with a crisp action. We’ve handbuilt new wheels for the bike – Mavic Open Pro rims laced to Shimano 105 hubs, and it’s rolling on our favourite fast and supple tyres, the Panaracer Pasela’s. Finally topped with a new Ergon saddle, designed in Germany for comfort on performance bikes.
One of the great advantages of steel frame bikes like this Giant is the ride feel. compared with the harsh ride of carbon and aluminium, steel absorbs shocks in the road, and this means greater comfort and less pain on long rides. Cromoly steel is also extremely durable and when you buy a steel frame bike, you’re making an investment that will pay off for many decades to come.
