First established in Wolverhampton in 1908 the Viking brand has a history, rich in the tradition of top quality road bikes throughout the century, but that’s not what we want to tell you about.
Stepping into 2015 Viking bikes are as good as ever, and this year could be something special.
Introducing the Viking Buttermere.
The latest in a long line of quality hybrids, this bike has all you could ask for, with an 18 speed Shimano transmission, full mudguards, a rear pannier rack and a modern take on a classic paint job, this really is a very unique bike.
With real attention to detail on this bike, the modern-vintage paint job is accompanied by an equally stylish leather look trim. With a comfortable Viking branded saddle and matching tan grips, the new take on old school really has been done properly.
Now, for the more technically minded readers, we have a nice little surprise

So, why would you want a hybrid?
Well, its the perfect mix between road, race, mountain and touring bike. There are features for everyone. From the more upright riding position, to the sleek tyres, there’s something for everyone in a hybrid.
One of the most useful features is the rear pannier rack
Whether you load it up with vintage look panniers, or just strap a few bungee cords on the back, this sturdy rack will be your best friend on those afternoon jaunts down to the shops, or on the early morning commute to work.
Finished in matt silver, to match the retro mudguards, the rear pannier rack sits perfectly atop the rear wheel.
