A well equipped, lightweight road bike at a great price, perfect for anyone after a fast and smooth ride.
"An ultra-budget bike normally means poor tyres, shonky brakes, wonky wheels and way too much weight. Thankfully the Rivelin meets the low-cost challenge head on.
The Rivelin is a good, solid bike at a great price, and has clearly been put together by a knowledgeable team"
Cycling Plus, January 2016
The Calibre Rivelin Road Bike
has been designed for relaxed riding and newcomers to road cycling - the emphasis very much on all-day comfort.
At its core is its compact frame geometry,
tweaked for a more upright riding position. Hand-welded with high quality lightweight aluminium tubing
, it has subtly shaped seatstays that help dampen bumps and vibrations before they reach the saddle.
It's not just about comfort, however. The lightweight tubing means faster acceleration and quicker climbing. An oversized downtube
provides superb frame stiffness for efficient power transfer and a responsive ride. There is even a rear rack mount, making the bike an option for commuting and light touring. It's a great, versatile frame that is the foundation for an excellent all-round road bike.
Complementing the frame is a carbon fibre fork
which ensures razor-sharp handling and control, quickly and precisely transmitting every micro-adjustment you make into the bike. It also helps keep you fresh on long rides by soaking up annoying road buzz to combat upper-body fatigue while you hold the handlebars.
Gearing comes courtesy of Shimano's excellent 8-speed Claris system
with quick, smooth derailleurs and ergonomic, easy-to-use STI levers
. A quality FSA chainset
carries power efficiently from the pedals to the drivetrain with compact 50/34 tooth
chainrings offering a wide range of easier gears for conquering hilly terrain.
The wheels combine lightweight alloy rims
with high quality hubs for efficient high speed performance. A double-wall rim construction is used for extra strength and resilience on rough roads and the semi-aero rim profile cuts through the wind to save you energy and boost your speed. Schwalbe's fast-rolling 23mm Lugano tyres
provide excellent grip, comfort and durability for great year-round performance.

New to road cycling, 18 August 2016
By Chris (Taunton)
As a newby to road riding I had a limited budget but after a bit of shopping around and great service from Taunton GO picked this Rivelin. great acceleration, great speed and comfy. I've only covered about 150 miles in the 2 weeks that I've had it but I'm hooked. The gears are smooth, the brakes are great, it just makes me go further and further. Thanks GO, great bike.

Wanted to start cycling again and found this to be a excellent choice. Quality components where it matters and quite light weight, a little niggle with some chain rub in the lower gears was easily sorted on the 6 week check in store. Might want to change the saddle, though that's a personal choice.
Rivelin Bike, 02 April 2016

I ordered mine online in December 2015 and it arrived promptly. After setting up and little bit of fettling, as the head set hadn't been fitted correctly, I have enjoyed a number of trouble free miles.
For 200-300 pounds (weekend special price leading up to Christmas), the bike is excellent for the new / casual rider.
By Steve (York)
I have owned this bike 52cm bike for about 5 months. I bought it as a touring bike, not a racer. Often I ride with small groups or with a mate 30 - 40 miles. this has proved to be brilliant. The gearing is just right and as already being said, you can get up most hills. I rode York to Bradford and back with rack and panniers on. It is quite a hilly ride but the bike was perfect. I wasn’t shattered after the ride either. I have put 1" tyres on and changed the handlebar stem. Now I love it.
The customer service I received from York branch was 1st class.
great value for money, 03 January 2016
By Andy (Huddersfield)
I cycle approx 60-100 miles per week, mostly on Sunday club runs. My old Winter bike finally gave up the ghost and unwilling to take out my Summer bike i had to look for a budget winter bike. I have ridden the Rivelin twice so far and am really impressed. One ride was a 50 mile club run and it handled really well. It's not the lightest bike and the wheels don't roll as well as more expensive models and I will probably replace them soon. However for the money this is a really good bike. The gearing will get a fit cyclist up most hills. Claris gearing is a bit clunky, but shifts up and down the gears well enough. The carbon fork helps to give a smooth ride and after a 50 mile trip I don't feel any more fatigued then I would on my more expensive bike. I would highly recommend this bike to someone looking for a first road bike or someone looking for a winter/second bike.
