Orange Speedwork Hybrid Bike 2021 - Grey
THE PERFECT "ALL-ROUNDER"
A week is a long time to go without a dash of Orange, so we created the Speedwork; a super-fast everyday flat handlebar gravel bike that's far beyond a hybrid. The Speedwork defies being labelled; a breathtaking blend of gravel bike comfort and road bike speed is what this bike is all about, with a healthy dose of fun thrown in.
A brand new frame for this year sees updated geometry, internal cable routing and some neat extra features for rack and mudguard users. We've also added an extra set of bottle bosses under the downtube if frame bags are your thing.
Built around our legendary 6061 tubing, the Speedwork offers all the comfort and control you'd ever need, with a rigid carbon fork, 700c wheels and fast-rolling 37c tyres for flat-out speed on man-made terrain. Big gear ratios and reliable componentry means minimal servicing even when you’re clocking up commuter miles.
A bike this good isn’t just a weekday workhorse though. For weekend bike-packing trips, that gravel race you really want to do, the daily grind or just relishing the thrill of riding fast, the Speedwork totally nails it. Of all the Oranges in your quiver, this could be the one you ride most.

Ready to rideEvery bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes.
This process has a lead time of 7-10 working days. Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals - rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.
Making sure you are homeOnce fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.
Taking DeliveryAny mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.
First ServiceAfter a few weeks of riding (we recommend around 6-8 weeks, regardless of how much the bike has been used), a new bike will need a service to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase, after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic.
It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of your bicycle. If you’re local to us, we’re able to offer this first service free of charge* at our Newcastle store (NE1 6JE). You’ll just need to call our workshop on 0191 917 3825 to book your service in, and don’t forget to bring your proof of purchase when you drop the bike off with us.
If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to ensure a first service is carried out at a trusted bike shop local to you, preferably by a Cytech certified mechanic. Start Fitness are unfortunately not able to cover any costs associated with this service if carried out by another store.
*Please note that this complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories. All bikes should be delivered to us in a clean and serviceable condition, or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable.
Bike ServicingBicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.
