Hallett Fast Road review

Hallett is a small-scale custom steel framebuilder in the UK. The Hallett Fast Road is a classic road bike described as being ideal for challenge rides

Hallet Road Fast
Cycling Weekly Verdict

A high-quality, very well made classy machine. If you don't want to worry about the lifespan of carbon and the perennial creak of a PressFit bottom bracket then you should consider steel, with the Hallett Fast Road representing a great option. I could argue that there is appeal in being the only person on your club run with a Hallett, however owing to the quality, value and customisation, there's a good chance one of your friends will copy you once they see it.
