tr8 interceptor road bike


Time to lose some weight and get fit… what better, more stylish way to do it?

The TR8 Interceptor is our top line road bike, yet at only £330, I bet you are thinking how can it be top line? It definitely looks like it should cost a whole lot more. This is down to our very careful design, component selection, minute attention to detail & direct from factory to your door pricing policy. We did our homework on our selection of components for the TR8. Instead of opting like many manufacturers for the industry standard Shimano gear-set, we selected the Taiwanese manufactured Microshift system which offers a lot more bang for your buck:

Frame: full 6061 handcrafted aluminium alloy with aero teardrop top & down tubes (fast road geometry), CNC machined head tube with integral sealed cartridge headset, Forks: Aero, straight, taper blade, 6061 alloy, Gear set: 16 speed Microshift indexed with brake shifters, Prowheel solid chain-set Wheels: Alloy double wall aero 700c rim with latest 25c Kenda hi pressure road tyres / KT semi sealed loose ball quick release rear hub + cartridge driver / sun-race 8 speed cassette 12-25T / KT quick release front alloy hub, Bars: 2013 latest geometry alloy race drop bar, Stem: ahead alloy, reversible, Brakes: quality alloy calliper, alloy lever, Seat: Micro adjust Mafiabikes race rail seat / alloy post / alloy seat clamp, pedals: steel cage supplied with toe clips and straps


Although lesser known in the UK, the Microshift system is widely accepted in other countries as being more responsive and providing direct, positive and faster shifting. In addition, when faced with a combination of braking and shifting operations, as a rider, you will have far more control and thus confidence. Ultimately we decided, for a fast road application, Microshift would provide our customers with a more positive, satisfying and confident performance feel. If you are going to go fast on today’s busy roads, you at least need to be in control!

With a Microshift race gear-set, an aero teardrop frame construction that is both stiff and extremely light, straight leg taper alloy forks, geometry that suits a fast road application and overall styling you don’t normally see on bikes any where near this price bracket; I guess you are now wondering why some people are paying upwards of £600 for a similar specced bike? You don’t have to, we have proven that yet again. Why pay more? 
The TR8 oozes quality and sophistication and achieves this at the fraction of the price of a similarly specced road bike.
