  • Vagabond is a monstercross bike in the loosest sense of the term; the illegitimate lovechild of a road and mountain bike, a 'frankenbike' that has long been the staple of shed tinkerers, the result of many an experimental 'I wonder if?' spare parts box builds.The late, great Steve Worland summed them up nicely as "?the perfect cross-dresser for those long, steady rides that encompass a bit of everything." Tourer, commuter, ruffty tuffy road bike, the Vagabond will happily turn it's hand to most disciplines with as much as a simple tyre swap.We've uprated the frameset to utilise Reynolds' benchmark 725 steel which further enhances the ride qualities, while modernising the dropouts to bring 12mm thru-axles into the game. In keeping with its off-road persuasions, a 1X Sram Apex drivetrain with a 36T chainring keeps things moving forward over all terrains, with the mountain-bike style 29er wheels and tyres rolling over the worst of any rough stuff.
