The ‘gentleman’s choice’ from this bunch, the Juicer Hi is the standalone steel offering, with a spec that gives it a certain individuality.

The colour-coded mudguards and brown leather-effect saddle and bar tape give it a versatile aesthetic – remove the guards, throw on a sportier saddle and some white bar tape, and you’ve instantly got a whole new machine.

The Tange Prestige steel frame is plenty stiff enough to deliver race-worthy performance while the Shimano RS20s are a top choice too.

Verdict

The chainset is the Juicer Hi’s biggest failing, and could do with something stiffer in order to deliver a more punchy ride feel, if that’s your goal.
