Road CC review the Goldhawk Rodax and give it an amazing 5/5!
Fantastic flat-bar urban bike with a superb handmade Reynolds 520 frame and ideal spec for £1,400. It’s a steel steal!
On paper, a £1,400 handmade Reynolds 520 steel flat-bar bike with a 1x SRAM drivetrain and matching hydraulic brakeset is pretty enticing. In reality, the Goldhawk Rodax is as close as you’ll get to the perfect off-the-shelf urban speed machine. With a ride that marries quick control with instant power transfer and – believe it or not – impressive levels of comfort, all it needs is to be set up to your personal preference and then… enjoy.
  • Pros: Fast, exciting and comfortable ride, perfect spec, astounding value
  • Cons: 580mm handlebar is just a tad narrow, 32mm tyres might be better than the 28s fitted

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.
