NB:Finishing kit differs from that shown in images.

Holdsworth's new Elan is a classic road bike with a twist. Compact frame angles, sloping top tube and a short head tube are paired with disk brake functionality to provide the perfect all-rounder, a bike that demands to be ridden with energy and enthusiasm. With double butted steel tubing it's every bit a Holdsworth but with the additional advantage of powerful braking that only disk brakes can offer.

  • Double butted steel frame
  • TIG welded frame, investment cast dropouts
  • Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset
  • Avid BB5 disk brakes

Frameset: No other material offers the feel of steel. It absorbs road shock and lays out a magic carpet over the roughest road surfaces. Built from lightweight double butted Cro-mo tubing and designed for disk brakes the Elan offers a confidence-inspiring ride on any road.

The Elan frameset features a sloping top tube and short head tube typical of 'compact geometry' bikes. Shorter frame tubes save weight and you'll appreciate every saved gram when you're powering up the hills on the Elan. A steep seat tube puts you over the cranks for the easiest pedal stroke while shorter chainstays and a carefully considered front end package deliver agile handling that makes the Elan simply a delight to ride.

As you'd expect from a bike with English brand heritage we've specified a BSA bottom bracket and a slender 27.2mm seat post to complement the Elan's traditional styling. The Elan is finished off with investment cast dropouts and brazed on full-length mudguard mounts so you can enjoy it all year round. Created for disk brakes you'll ride safely in the knowledge that no matter how aggressively you attack the corners that you'll be able to pull up to a stop quickly whatever the weather conditions.

Groupset: Shimano's 6800 Ultegra (22-speed) groupset hits a real sweetspot in the price Vs performance stakes. It offers 95% of the performance of Dura-Ace, but at a lower price that makes it obtainable for more competitive riders. Ergonomics, drivetrain durability and gear shift fluidity are first class with Ultegra 6800. Faultless gear shifts across the 11-32 cassette, even under the heavy load, comes with the lightest touch of the controls. Shimano are masters of precision gear shifting, taken to a whole new level with Ultegra 6800.

Braking is courtesy of Avid's tried and tested BB5 mechanical disk brackes. There's plenty of power and modulation on tap making the Elan perfect fro riding 365 days of the year, whatever the weather.

Wheelset: Gipiemme are well known for their alloy and carbon fibre race wheels, now they've put their all into creating a practical, value for money 29"/ 700c disc brake wheelset. Built for road and off-road use the Gippemme Roccia is supremely versatile, it'll be equally at home on our touring bikes as it would any of our Gravel Adventure or cyclocross bikes. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is the perfect inexpensive do it all 700c wheelset.
