Tempting Tempos

We show you great ways to build the versatile Condor Tempo Single Speed model. Which is your favourite? We used the blueprint of our best-selling Fratello and mixed it with the simplicity of single speed riding to make going from A to B easy.

The Pizza Rack Single Speed Build

The upright, relaxed riding position is perfect for making your way to green spaces for a picnic, to pick up groceries, or grab your favourite sourdough takeaway pizza.

The build
A simple alloy flat handlebar and front low rider rack with gumwall tyres for a classic look.

Minoura Gamora Low Rider Front Rack

The City Commuter

Ready for all weathers, nothing will stop you getting where you need to go, fast.

The build
Polished silver components, wide 28mm puncture-resistance Continental Gatorksin tyres, and handbuilt wheels to absorb rough tarmac.

Frame Features

Triple-Butted Steel

Why it works
Steel is the perfect material for rough urban roads and gravel tarmac paths. Steel is inherently compliant, and our triple-butting process creates a lightweight tubeset that won't hold you back.

Forward Facing Dropouts

Why it matters
Sometimes punctures happen, and no one wants to spend ages at the side of the road.
Unlike traditional single speed frames, with the Tempo you drop your wheel forward, just like a road frame. This makes wheel changes easier, especially if you use mudguards, as there is no need to remove the guard to remove the wheel from the bike.
