New to the 2016 Encore line, the 22-inch Anthem is nimble like a 20-inch but has the additional stability of a bigger bike. Built on 22-inch wheel, the 21.75-inch top tube and 8.7-inch bars pair nicely with the 53mm front load stem for a spacious ride. Spec’d with fully sealed front and rear hubs, chromoly down tube, top tube and head tube as well as full chromoly tapered leg forks and double wall rear wheels, this bike is not only good-looking but also durable. Additional features include 25/9 gearing, 3 piece tubular chromoly cranks, Odyssey Twisted PC pedals, clearance for 2.4 tires and an embossed encore logo on the seat. Keep downtime to a minimum with low-maintenance components like fully sealed rear cassette, sealed integrated headset and sealed Mid bottom bracket.
