Irons In The FireSteel Gravel Bike
The very name denotes the versatility of what our steel all-rounder can turn its hand to. If one bike could do it all, then this is as near as we could make it. The lightweight steel tubes are hardy and offer robust, lifelong service. Mixed with a low maintenance choice of components, this bike is equally at ease on the gravel as it is on a daily commute to a full-blown tour. The Irons in the Fire offers unrivalled reliability and strength.
An integrated oversize head tube gives a slightly higher front end for a more upright riding position, meaning greater control on gravel and good visibility on the road. The sturdy full carbon fork can accommodate tyres from 32mm up to 50mm wide, perfect to offer versatility in use.
Mudguards and pannier racks may be fitted to transform the bike into a full blown commuting, touring or bike packing machine. Choose between mechanical or electronic GRX groupsets and handbuilt carbon or alloy wheels to match your use and budget. Powerful, easy pull hydraulic brakes guarantee safe, reliable braking in all conditions.
“Customers often bring in decades-old steel Pearson bikes and it makes us feel nostalgic in one sense, but also very proud that they have weathered many thousands of miles and still going strong. Sustainability is at the heart of cycling and the latest iteration of 'The Irons' oozes such potential. The new frame updates, notably no-nonsense cable routing, through wheel axles and oval tubes, combined with the 1 x 11 gearing is a real winner of a bike for those looking for a trusty do it all machine.
