Light and robust the CGR Alloy is an impressive bike that will take you anywhere with capable performance and striking style. Strong, versatile and durable, the geometry of the hand built, British-designed CGR Alloy has been carefully formulated to conquer a wide range of riding surfaces with ease.
Versatility is at the core of the CGR range and this aluminium model certainly ticks all of the boxes. The endurance (relaxed riding position) geometry of the CGR Alloy makes this bike comfortable, composed, responsive and ready for any ride.
We liked the relaxed “endurance” riding position and our test bike, fitted with the excellent Shimano 105 groupset, was light enough to easily keep pace with clubmates on Sunday runs.

I randomly came across this bike company and I had never heard of it before since I live in the USA. I'm very happy with my purchase and the 1 x 11 is very versatile for the local terrain I have here. The ride is very plush and not as stiff as my previous road bike so the rides aren't as jarring when I go over rough asphalt or gravel. Overall 5 stars for the build quality and value for the price. The customer service team was very informative and brought much needed peace of mind as I patiently waited for my build.
The way the bike rolls with Schwalbe g-one 40mm tires was an unexpectedly pleasant surprise.
Below 30 km/h i don't really feel any difference in the pedaling effort, compared to the 25mm tires on my roadbike.
Sure, it's not that fast over 30 km/h, but that's ok, as on the sections with lousy tarmac i can go faster than with the road bike.
Also, the position is more comfortable.
So the bottom line is i really like the bike.
