The ultimate workhorse, the Croix de Fer 725 delivers a refined ride quality and for a modest weight penalty, keeps the pricing keen. Reynolds mandrel butt and heat-treat this alloy so that thinner walls can be used compared to non-heat-treated steels. Standard QR dropouts mean your 9mm wheelsets can keep turning for another few year and the practicalities dont end there. A trio of bottle cage mounts and threaded bottom bracket combine to make this Croix de Fer our benchmark model.
