Paris hotness.

Condor Cycle’s remake of the original Paris Galibier bicycle.

The design for this unique bike came about in the 1940s, designed by Harry Rensch. Later, during the early 80’s, Michael Kemp and Monty Young set up Paris Lightweight Cycles, and with the help of a West London frame builder, Tom Board, built the Paris Galibier.

The reasoning behind the tube arrangement was to eliminate flex, but also allowing a degree of elasticity that helped to smooth bumpy roads.

So, Condor have relaunched it, such is the interest in retro bikes. It certainly stands out from the crowd, and if you want one Condor will build one to order. Frame and fork prices from £1,200.
