Boardman Launches 20th Anniversary Track Bike

In 1992 Chris Boardman announced himself to the world of cycling by winning the 4km Pursuit in Barcelona (the first British Gold medal for 72 years) and simultaneously inspiring the next generation of great British cyclists.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Chris's success on the track Boardman Bikes has created the Elite Series TK/20 in a Limited Edition of 92 signed bikes.

The TK/20 is a superlight, triple butted alloy frame with track-specific geometry, full aero carbon fork, tapered steerer and stainless steel dropout plates - in addition, the design also allows for brakes to be fitted, making it road as well as track friendly.

"Success on the track in '92 was the springboard for my career as a pro rider. Every hour spent in the velodrome paid back ten fold when I started to ride for a pro tour team. Track cycling might be a specific beast but I wanted to create a bike that could, without compromise, also be used on the road, so brake compatibility has been designed in. It would certainly make a unique fast-fixie!"
Chris Boardman - R&D Director, Boardman Bikes.

The frame - combined with a great spec including Truvativ Omnium GXP chainset, Fizik Arione saddle and cboardman Carbon/Pro finishing kit – is finished off with Limited Edition graphics featuring gold decals and a metal head badge.

The Limited Edition TK/20 is available across the world. In the UK through our network of Elite Series authorised IBD's and worldwide through our existing distribution channels. Pre-order now to reserve a piece of history, for September delivery.
