The 18spd road and commuter range is the latest edition to the Mango Bikes collection. Its design is based on exactly the same design as our award winning single speed bikes (add link) from the frame geometry through to the deep v-aero rims. The road and Commuter range come with the added addition of 18 gears in the form of a MicroShift R9 shifter and derailleur system. So many customers were getting in touch with us saying they loved Mango Bikes but they wanted more gears so we hit the drawing board and came up with the 18spd road bike and the 18spd commuter bike.
The two variations are exactly the same apart from their handlebar type. The commuter bike is fitted with a set of our riser bars with MicroShift R9 flat bar window gear shifters, suitable for stop, start commuting and dodging traffic. The road bike is fitted with a larger stem, oversize drop bars and MicroShift R9 dual control levers/shifters, allowing you to transfer weight, lean over the bike and cover some serious miles at speed.
When choosing either the 18spd best road bike or best commuter bike you’re still guaranteed all of our usual great components, such as Chasewood sealed wheel bearings and Kenda 25c tyres with the option to upgrade to Maxxis Re-Fuse puncture resistant tyres for extra security on long commutes or country rides. The frame geometry provides a natural and comfortable riding position with both the road and commuter setup. All of our frames are fitted with mudguard and pannier mounts and finished in a stylish and durable matte paint finish. Other quality features include a Chasewood crank, KMC chain, C Star dual pivot brakes and a chromo rail hard wearing MB Upgrade saddle.
Both bikes are priced extremely competitively with the commuter bike starting at just £429.99 and the road bike at just £479.99 which when you consider the quality of componentry used compared to other cheap men’s road bikes, it really is great value for money. Plus all bikes come with the standard Mango Bikes customer service policy, which includes every bike being hand built to order, tuned and quality checked by one of our trained mechanics, a three year warranty and a hassle free returns process.
