TERN Verge X10

Quick Ride and comfortable handling

The Verge X10 is a lightweight and a quick little rig, awesome for city riders with an efficient-feeling that’s more befitting of a mid-ranged road bike than something intended for commuting. Perhaps most telling is the fact that we often grabbed the Verge X10 if we were running late for something

We attribute of the eagerness to the bike’s 9.7kg total weight, rotating mass of the 20″ inch wheels, and the quick roll of the Schwalbe Durano slick tires, although Tern’s work on the futuristic-looking TIG-welded aluminum frame deserves mention.

The single-tube front end won’t win any stiffness tests but the frame is still surprisingly stout, with no disconcerting wiggle in the chassis. Though the seatpost and stem tower over the rest of the structure, their enormous diameters feel reassuringly solid.

Equipment: Lots of high-end custom bits

The wheels are custom designed by Rolf Dietrich, featuring his trademark paired spoke layout, Sapim bladed stainless spokes, special American Classic hubs, and a claimed sub-1kg weight. It’s also well built and easily holding up to everyday abuse. Wrapped around the orange anodized aluminum rims are Schwalbe’s fast-rolling Durano slick tires.

SRAM handles shifting duties with a single X7 trigger shifter, short cage X9 rear derailleur, and 10-speed PG-1050 11-36T cassette.

Its a great choice of folding bicycle with lightweight and running on a 10 speed. You can find it in Van’s Urban Bicycle Co and do contact us if you’re interested @ 012-313 6420 or 03-7932 1311.
