Taking the city potholes and turning them on their heads, the Substance breaks over these crags & bumps in much the way a 29er would. In its british racing green finish, it’s got a look that gets better with a little bit of dirt and grime. But there is much more to the Substance than just an about-town commuter.
The Shimano 9 Speed Sora groupset is well known for its performance and durability making it the perfect choice for the Substance. The Sora shifters have the same dual control setup as the top end groupsets and also feature an optical window to show which gear you have selected. Shifting is precise and consistent, right the way through the 9 speed cassette. The Shimano Sora chainset and bottom bracket are stiffer and lighter than a standard square taper chainset. With 46/34t compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
Tektro C400 cable operated disc brakes with 160mm rotors allowing excellent braking performance in all conditions.
Finishing the Substance off is a collection of parts from Cosine. Using a Alloy 75mm reach bar,a 3D forged stem, Single bolt alloy 27.2mm seatpost and a Cosine road specific saddle. A great, light-weight finishing kit to top the Substance off.

If an Ex Demo or Shop soiled bike is listed, then this bike has been used for demonstration / test ride purposes. There will be no structural damage to the bike, but it will have VERY minimal wear to the drivetrain and contact points, may have small scratches/marks on the bike and, although the bike has been cleaned, there could be evidence of road riding/dirt on the tyres and rest of bike Note: Manufacturer may reserve the right to change the specification of that listed or shown on this page.
Please also note that Ex Demo and Shop Soiled bikes can only be sold within the UK.
Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tyres and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tyres for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for mudguards, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tyres and commute on them during the week.
Cyclists are passionate about their sport and equally as passionate about the bikes they ride. In few sports do participants take such pride, interest and involvement in their equipment, but to a cyclist a bike is more than just the right tool for the job, it is an extension of them and reflects their individual personality. Those of us who have worked to create Verenti understand this. We're cyclists too...
