Revolution is the exclusive brand name of Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op, the UK’s original workers’ co-operative bicycle retailer. Our brand name was inspired by the slogan we adopted in 1999 The Revolution Will Not Be Motorised. It’s a slogan we still stand by. It’s our proclamation that, for most people in most circumstances, the bicycle is the smartest way to get around. Our Revolutionary ambition is to make quality bicycles more affordable. To earn its classy metal head badge every Revolution bicycle must pass the most exacting quality test. That is, would we wholeheartedly recommend this bike to our close friends and relatives? To this end every Revolution bicycle is designed to offer the best specification you will find at its price point.

Take this year’s Revolution Continental road bike (page 11). It hasn’t just had its butted 7005 aluminium frame upgraded for 2012. Its red-anodised gear hanger, red cable housing, red stripe tyres and red-anodised headset spacers combine to create a striking unified look. Despite these upgrades, at £449.99, this fast road bike costs £10 less than last year’s model. You will find similar examples of this attention to detail whichever type of bike you are looking for, whether it’s a Revolution Ascent mountain bike, a Revolution Courier fast commuter bike or a Revolution Trailfinder hybrid. This little booklet puts the spotlight on six examples of our 2012 range to give you a flavour of what Revolution bikes are all about: bicycles that are easy on the eye and easy on the pocket.

Moreover, we believe that a fine bicycle isn’t just about its technical specification. We want you to be as proud of your bike as we are of ours. That’s why we go the extra mile to ensure that every Revolution bicycle looks as good as it performs.

REVOLUTION TRAILFINDER £249.99

Web Ref: 14577

BEST-EQUIPPED COMMUTER/ HYBRID FOR THE MONEY. Not so long ago you visited a bike shop and the choice was between a skinny-tyred road bike and a knobbly-tyred MTB (mountain bike). Many Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op customers let us know they craved something in between. This inspired us to create the Trailfinder. Its alloy MTB frame and wheels make it perfect for Sustrans paths. Then we civilized the bike for city use with smoother-rolling 26x1.95 semi-slick tyres. We fitted it with mudguards to protect you from wheel spray. We spec’d a steel rigid fork that was lighter weight than any suspension fork and would never require maintenance. We gave it adjustable-rise handlebars so you could explore trails in upright comfort. That was back in 2005. The Revolution Trailfinder worked so well, we have retained its key features to this day. If it ain’t broke.... Even though it’s the least expensive bike we do, many Bike Co-op customers have told us that it’s as good a bicycle as they will ever need. Why pay more? We are confident that you won’t find a better equipped commuter/ hybrid bike for this kind of money in Britain today.

REVOLUTION ASCENT XC DISC £299.99

Web Ref: 14590

ADVANCED MTB SPEC @ ENTRY-LEVEL PRICE. The Revolution Ascent XC Disc brings you the key features of a better quality MTB (mountain bike) at an entry-level price point. The lightweight lifetime-guaranteed 7005 aluminium alloy frame has been tried and tested on Revolution MTBs for the past decade. Check the business-like welds and the sculpted rear dropout. The Ascent’s suspension fork is equally reliable. It’s made by SunTour - probably the world’s largest fork manufacturer. Amazingly for the money, the fork’s 63mm travel can be locked out - a feature you might appreciate on smooth road rides, and definitely on ascents. Shimano EZ Fire shifters control the 3x7 (21-speed) gears. The 640mm-wide alloy riser bar, with 31.8mm centre clamp, steers the Ascent with authority. Should you need to scrub the Ascent’s speed, you will be grateful for its mechanical disc brakes courtesy of renowned bicycle brake manufacturer, Clarks. The Revolution Ascent XC Disc comes in 5 sizes to suit near-any adult. The 14” model is a perfect intro to the pleasures of mountain biking for kids as young as 12.

REVOLUTION HERITAGE DELUXE £399.99

Web Ref: 14585

WE’RE PROUD OF OUR HERITAGE. Brand new for 2012 our Heritage Deluxe proves that elegant traditional-styled bikes are a great way to travel in the 21st Century. Its tall handlebars with faux leather grips, its matching sprung saddle and its swoopy unisex frame invite you to step on the pedals and enjoy the ride - perhaps with a punnet of cherries and a bottle of pop in the wicker basket. The bike’s full mudguards and chain guard reduce the risk of soiling your clothes. True to its great British biking heritage, it boasts Sturmey Archer drum brakes and 3-speed hub gears. These are intrinsically longer lasting than brakes and gears that are obliged to live on the outside of the bike in all weathers. The bike even comes fitted with a kickstand, making it as easy to park as it is a pleasure to ride. The only deviations from the Heritage Deluxe’s old-school vibe are the frame, wheels, cranks, seatpost and stem which are all lightweight aluminium alloy. We wouldn’t want you to get too weighed down by tradition.

REVOLUTION CONTINENTAL £449.99

Web Ref: 14570

A ROAD BIKE FOR ALL SEASONS. When Cycling Plus magazine reviewed last year’s version of our Continental road bike, they summed it up as follows: ‘The Revolution Continental’s looks received positive comments even from cyclists riding machines costing three times as much. Just as positive was the riding experience: during faster-paced group riding on the flat it can easily steam along at over 20mph.’ For 2012, we have refined the bike’s frame with new features such as a flattened/profiled hydroformed top tube and a butted seat tube. Weatherproof internal gear cable routing with full-length cable outers help ensure flawless communication between the Shimano 2300 2x8 Dual Control shifters and the gear mechs. This internal routing reinforces the Continental’s credentials as a bicycle for all seasons - that is, it is one of the few road bikes with the clearance and the eyelets required to fit full mudguards. For all these upgrades in spec, the 2012 Continental costs £10 less than last year’s model. Revolutionary value, indeed.

REVOLUTION COURIER HYDRO ÂŁ549.99

Web Ref: 14578

ROAD BIKE SPEED. HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKE STOPPING POWER. Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op pioneered the fast, stealth commuter bike concept with our first Courier bike in 1999. The idea was to offer a scintillating road bike-like ride, but with flat handlebars rather than drops. Originally launched as a single model, the Courier is now available in 5 different versions. This brand new Hydro is our most evolved and best equipped Revolution Courier bike to date. Its carbon fork maximises comfort and minimises weight. Low-maintenance Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes bestow your fingertips with light-action single-digit braking-power. The red-anodised gear hanger, headset spacers and seat clamp help ensure the Courier Hydro looks as good as it rides. Shimano Acera 3x9-speed Rapidfire gearing expands the potential of this bike, way beyond commuting. With such a wide range of gears you could easily go cycle touring on a Courier Hydro.

REVOLUTION BELTER ÂŁ599.99

Web Ref: 14569

BELT-DRIVE SINGLESPEED. NO CHAIN, NO OIL, NO RUST, NO NOISE, NO PROBLEM. Singlespeeds are almost always quieter than bikes with gears. We have taken the silent running theme to the next level with the introduction of the Belter, featuring the Gates Carbondrive System. Previously reserved for bikes costing hundreds of pounds more, this transmission employs a non-stretch carbon belt which meshes perfectly with the dedicated chainwheel and rear cog, and introduces you to a new level of drivetrain efficiency. Gates are the world leader in timing belts for cars, so you can be confident that this system has been precision tested. If you are sceptical about belt drive, we suggest you arrange a test ride at any Bike Co-op shop. You have nothing to lose but your chain (and the need to clean and lube it). When you experience how quickly this sub-10 kilo bike (as light as some road bikes costing double) gets you quietly up to speed you’ll understand why we call it a Belter.
