Kepler can run up to 42c tyres when you need that extra grip, however it’s equally happy running slicks when you want to keep up with the roadies. And of course it’s fully equipped to fit front and rear panniers if you’re loading up for a longer trip. It features laser cut disc dropouts, s-shaped chainstays and a slightly lighter fork for 2017. The double butted chromoly tubing makes for a tough yet lightweight ride which will keep going for years to come.
Brother are an awesome brand. Based in London, they have an impressive range of beautiful, high quality bikes at competitive prices. Their Kepler is an all-purpose machine; with fast and comfortable geometry it’s ideal for long days in the saddle over mixed terrain.
