The Creme Tempo range retains the Creme styling ethos but offers a more low key appearance. Elegant, understated, functional and fast. The riding position on these bikes is focused on speed and efficiency without sacrificing comfort; the use of steel in the frame results in a much smoother ride than in bikes with alloy constructions. The beautiful TIG welded steel frame alone makes this bike stand out from the crowd, add to this the 8 speed internal hub and disc brakes and you have a modern classic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by racingSnake Excellent value for money, and looks good in the bike shed.
Goes nicely and handles well. You don't notice the extra weight of the steel frame over an Alu frame. 8 speed hub gears work well and has a nice spread of ratios, if a little noisy at first but after a few days bedded in and has been nice and smooth since. Disc brake work very well, a massive improvement on rim brake.
For my 11k cycle to work it's as fast as my racer and takes bumps and mud with ease.
150 kilometres so and no issues
