Throw anything you like at this bike – it’s capable of doing it all.
We created the ST1.0 from Reynolds 520 steel because we wanted a strong frame with a comfortable ride and a classic look. It can handle the rigours of everyday riding and bike commuting as well as more varied terrain. SRAM Apex gears, strong E28 wheels and fitted mudguards complete the package so you can put in the miles without worrying about your bike.
• Strong Reynolds 520 steel frame
• Classic styling and graphics
• Comfortable riding position
• Fitted mudguards and rack
mounts for practical everyday riding
• Perfect for tackling varied terrain
The original frame material and still, some say, the best. Reynolds have been making bike tubing for over a hundred years and their 520 steel carries on those traditions to our ST1.0 frame. Complete with a comfortable riding position, wider tyres and a classic look, the ST1.0 lets you do more in style.
The Guardian reviews the ST1.0: "A steel-framed turquoise beauty [...] It has built-in mudguards and chunky tyres designed not to get a puncture when you cycle past a rough pub after a heavy night of bottling.
"An all-weather, all-round bike that won't let you down on the way to work or on a weekend spin."
Zest magazine try out the ST1.0. "If you're a speedy city cyclist, you'll want a bike that can take anything the road throws at it. This is where the Eastway ST1.0 comes in," says the review. "Its strong frame and widened wheels are durable and touch enough to conquer rough urban surfaces and withstand high speeds through stationary traffic."
6 March 2013: Simon O'Hagan approves of the ST1.0 in an article for The Independent, saying: "Steel is the vinyl of bike frames. The way things always were, and now making a comeback. Smart move, Eastway."
