Until recently, you’d be right to associate the name Cooper with performance cars, and most typically a Mini Cooper. But now the Cooper brand extends to two wheels of the human powered variety!
Cooper Bikes sees the company expand in to the bike market and their limited range includes a couple of beautifully retro styled single speed bikes. Using well known tubing and component manufacturers such as Reynolds, Brooks and Tektro, Cooper have produced some sleek looking bicycles.
The model pictured above is the Cooper Monza T100 (available in Monza Blue) and with it’s aggressive track bike styling offers a ride that is claimed to be confident and sharp yet smooth and comfortable. You’ve got the choice of riding single free or fixie as the bike has a Formula TH51 flip-flop hub.
This model has flat bars, whilst others in the range (which I’ll blog about in due course) offer a choice of dropped or bull horn bars. Cooper also make the T200 Reims – a 5 speed bike and therefore not that relevant for us fixies.
The complete Cooper Bikes range is in stock at wiggle.
