prague-based bicycle company repete has introduced two new bike models — the reason road model and the verne gravel bike — together with a new online platform dedicated to cycling culture. the bikes come to the market after several years of development and continue with their award-winning formula of blending modern and classic technology.
verne gravel bike
‘two years ago we decided to translate the experience we gained from manufacturing custom steel bikes into the development of the new ready-made reason and verne models. we still produce our frames in prague, but in a new location where most of the production processes take place. every single piece passes through our hands countless times before the final production, so we are therefore absolutely certain of the quality of our bikes,’ comments mikoláš voverka, one of repete’s founders.
repete’s newest models, the reason and the verne, are made of high-strength columbus spirit HSS steel with frames complemented by a columbus futura carbon fork with a tapered steerer. the shaped over-sized tubes, the T47 bottom bracket shell, and the shaped rear stay create the rigidity of the frame to efficiently transfer energy while making the frame comfortable on all types of surfaces. the reason model is available in three colors and features disc brakes and tire clearance up to 700x28c. available in two colors, the verne gravel model has the possibility of fitting wheels 700x40c or 650x47c wheels.
‘the details are the character of our products, and that is why we focused on developing our own flat-mount dropouts, which are made utilizing investment steel casting technology. thanks to the innovative internal cable routing, which we produced with state-of-the-art 3D printing, the frame is compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. the bike, therefore, remains visually clean,’ adds repete co-founder, robin fišer.
