London-based Brother Cycles recently added another bike to its lineup. The Mehteh is a “fast and agile” gravel bike designed for tough terrain and built around a Reynolds 725 steel frame. Here are the details.
Brother Cycles’ founders Will and James spent the last year developing and testing the Mehteh. Their aim was to evolve Brother’s classic steel all-road Kepler frame into a bike that could take on the toughest gravel tracks yet still be light, responsive, and a lot of fun to ride.
The result was the Mehteh, a bike that according to Brother, “perfectly straddles the divide between a mountain and all-road bike.” The personality of the Mehteh is reflected in its name—a Himalayan word for the mountain dwelling Yeti which translates to man beast.
Brother Cycles Mehteh features
- Frame: Reynolds 725 main triangle
- Fork: Tapered carbon gravel
- Tire Clearance: 650b x 56mm (2.2″) / 700c x 45mm
- Dropouts: Thru-axle flat-mount
- Cable Routing: External + Stealth dropper post
