Viking Camden FS 20′ Gents Sports Urban Hybrid Bike (Grey) (20′ Frame)

The flagship bike in the 2013 urban sport range. Built around Vikings urban sports hybrid frame, the tubing is lightweight heat treated aluminium with geometry to suit anything from a quick commute to some serious long distance light rough riding. The Camden has upgraded forks and brakes over the Bayswater, Viking has fitted Suntour NEX-4110-V4 suspension forks with adjustable preload and 50mm of travelto iron out the bumps if you wish to take this model off the tarmac and into the wilds. Transmission is all Shimano, 24 speed push button STI gear shifters with Shimano front and rear derailleurs, an eight speed Shimano cassette and a Shimano triple chainset with lightweight alloy crank arms. This set-up will give you a gear for any terrain, super easy for steep hills and rough ground or super fast for track and road. When it comes down to stopping the Camden is no slouch, front and rear Promax disc brakes with Shimano adjustable reach alloy levers offer predictable stopping power in all conditions. The Camden is adaptable too, frame and forks have mudguard clearance with fitting bosses. Luggage won’t be a problem either, fitting points are provided for a rear pannier.
