The Goldhawk Rodax is probably the most exciting and fast flat-bar bike I’ve tested since the (aluminium) BMC Alpenchallenge first appeared half a decade ago. The two bikes themselves couldn’t be more different, but the fact that the (steel) Rodax shares the same eagerness to get up to speed is, in itself, quite an achievement. Factor in a forgiving, smooth and sublime ride, as well as that responsive performance under power, and you have an experience that is almost unbeatable.
Essentially, my thoughts about the Rodax can be summed up like this: it’s the best aspects of old school style and quality, combined with the best aspects of modern tech and performance. And it rides simply fantastically. Offer all that at a price within range of people who perhaps never thought they’d be able to stretch to a fairly exclusive handmade steel bike, and Goldhawk might have to reconsider its current plan to manufacture in only limited numbers.
