So what is the RS?
RS stands for Rough Stuff and is for those cyclists who love to wander off the beaten track but still want to do so on a Flying Gate. It has all the same frame angles as a traditional Gate but has the clearance to accommodate up to 32mm wide tyres. It’s ideal for taking on all those lovely Sustrans trails that cover the UK. So it’s still a Flying Gate and still your best riding buddy!
Designed with a clean minimalist look. The Dovedale RS uses a high quality non-ornate cast set of lugs and bottom bracket. The cast rear dropouts can be horizontal or vertical. We can also offer track ends if preferred.
The Dovedale RS is built using Reynolds 631 tubing (we can build using 725 or 853 for an additional cost) and the frame comes with a classic hand built fork with a 1 inch threaded or threadless steerer.
A quality headset is included (approximate value £60) and both frame and fork are finished in one colour as standard (lug-lining, chroming or contrasting panels would incur additional cost). All ‘Flying Gate’ decals are fitted under the lacquer.
One set of bottle cage bosses on down tube; traditional gear lever or ‘ergo’ bosses on down tube; rear brake and gear cable stops; bottom bracket gear cable guide (plastic) and mudguard eyes. The fork crown and rear brake bridge accommodate allen key brake fixing bolts.
Frames can be built for Touring, Audax or Single speed use.
Oh and if you ask nicely we might do it as an RS Deluxe as well.
