The bikes featured above are the ones we’ve sold most of over the years. Others are available of course and the intention here is to give you a quick comparison of the most important points of each model. The factor that will count most is how you fit to a particular bike. If you are less tall then using a taller bike can take more getting used to. The term ’racer’ does not signify that any of these bikes should be raced! Many are used on Audaxes though as over a long distance comfort counts. Some combine load carrying with sporty handling.

A good source of reviews and info on what we sell is found here at
Dave McCraw’s web site. For actual details of whether a particular bike will suit you then email Laid Back. We also have pdf sheets we can send out in addition to the links to manufacturer webs sites.
