The Corvus range, sets out to achieve what a decent entry level road bike should be. A bike that is capable without the price to match. The Corvus 100 cuts expense out of the equation by using cheaper materials and components. While making sure that a level of performance is still achievable. The Corvus 100 might not win the race, but unlike many other budget road bikes, it will certainly finish it.
22" Hi-Tensile road frame with bottle carrier bosses. 700c high-tensile fork, all-black Shimano chainset, with 170mm crank arms and chainguard. Shimano 14 speed thumb shifters, Shimano rear derailleur, 7-speed chain, and 14-28T Shimano freewheel. Barracuda 700c double-wall alloy rims. 700c x 23c all-black fast-rolling tyres.

The fact the bike comes with dropped handlebars, a thin leather seat and racing tyres shows you the designers intentions. They didn't want it to cost the earth but they wanted the Corvus 100 to look the part. We think they succeeded! What about you?
