Manufactured in Cambridge, the Abington is a sleek and sporty town bike designed by ARCC. Fitted with the Gates Carbon Belt Drive, the Abington provides a smooth and responsive ride paired to a low-maintenance and lightweight frame.

Its flowing lines are crafted from custom-drawn Reynolds Technology steel tubing and hand brazed in the UK. Machined stainless steel dropouts allow for a variety of drivetrain options and combine with large 650b x 38 tyres to provide a wonderfully comfortable, yet responsive ride.  

Available in a range of colours, there is a configuration to suit all riders.

We offer a 5-year frame warranty on all Abington bikes.

As well as being fully customisable to suit your needs, custom RAL colours are also available for an additional cost of £250 per bike.

Customer Review

I bought the ARCC Abington after a lengthy search for a quality UK bike that utilised the Gates Carbon Belt Drive. The team at ARCC were super helpful in helping with my initial questions then ensuring that the bike was configured with the right options for my needs - city riding in Brighton and longer rides along the coast and across the South Downs.
I opted for the Rohloff Speedhub which has been terrific in combination with the carbon belt drive - smooth, wide range and completely low maintenance. The Abington steel frame is beautiful and unique.
The other components and accessories were thoughtfully chosen and work together brilliantly. The ARCC team were around to answer questions when the bike arrived on time expertly built and only too happy to help whenever I’ve wanted to check anything, however minor.
I couldn’t be happier with the overall experience and would recommend ARCC wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a high quality UK bike of this type.
