Gear of the Day: Bombtrack Oxbridge Geared

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

As anyone who has caught the bike bug knows, N+1 is a dangerous equation. It starts innocently enough with one road bike, then scales to a nicer road bike, then a gravel bike, followed by a custom steel frame. Then the thought “maybe I should try ’cross” enters the picture (better get a second for the pits, too). For us, the addiction extends to casual bikes as well. With its timeless design, the Bombtrack Oxbridge Geared might just end our commuter search…for now. Painted a glossy emerald green and dressed with silver components, leather grips and gum-sidewall tires, this classic steel frame cuts a handsome figure. Mudguards painted to match the frame and a gorgeous downtube shifter show the Oxbridge’s attention to detail. And it’s no laid-back beach cruiser. The 1×9-speed drivetrain, with a 44-tooth chainring and 11–34 cassette, lets you go as fast as you need, with a range ready for hilly terrain. And built up with 700c wheels paired to 28mm tires that balance speed and comfort, it can switch modes from casual cruising to serious jaunts around town and into the countryside.
