Simon is an extreme long distance cyclist and when he first came into our workshop he finished the Berlin-Wien-Berlin 1500K Randonneur ride just the day before. Simon was still pretty much destroyed and we had to meet again the next day in order to make a decent bike fitting with him. Simon is from the UK and since a child he was a big fan of trains and so he came with the idea of making a bike in the style of the British Railways Express trains. We all loved the idea of that color scheme and so we teamed up with Tine and from Gramm Tourpacking and Robert from Velociao.com in order to design our own interpretation of a Fern Express Rando Bike, quoting typical details of those iconic locomotives. The final bike came out fantastic and I think we pretty much nailed that topic! The bike is build up with only the finest components available, such as the amazing Veloduo Carbon fenders with Asssaver fender flaps which will be available for EU customers exklusive at our Fern online shop soon! Allygn Diamond Front Rack and Gramm Diamond handlebar bag is a must have, also readily available in our online shops now. Other fine components are made by our friends at Beast Components, SON hubs and lights, custom made and painted Busch & Müller seatpost taillight, custom painted Chris King Cages, ESI, Brooks and Easton Cycling. I hope you will ride many many Brevet rides on this amazing machine mate,...Choo Choo, the Simon Express Train is coming!!
