A.N.T. Light Roadster 2008

This is the 2008 Light Roadster from A.N.T. Mike Flanigan of A.N.T. calls it “…the best all round bike I have come up with.” I really like the looks of this bike. To my eye it exudes a particularly attractive understated elegance; a perfect blend of old and new. If I was in the market for a custom bike, an A.N.T. roadster would be on my short list.

There’s a more colorful version of this model in antbike’s photostream.

    I have been riding my ANT Boston Roadster just about everywhere since May of 2004. With “only” a SRAM T-3 rear hub, I none the less prefer riding this black beauty than any of my deraileur cycles.

    I’ve had my LR since July 09, and am using it as primary daily transport. Mine was built up with triple/deraillers due to significant hills in my daily ride. It’s not as fast as my brother’s Madone but it’s incredibly comfortable, a great ride and perfect aesthetics. The front rack is perfect for a full briefcase, I use a small trunk on the back rack for rain gear and tools. Mike claims the LR will be the only bike you’ll want to ride, and in my case, that’s no exaggeration.

    Thanks for the report! I’m still trying to get my grubby paws on an LR for review, but Mike’s too busy building bikes to get one out to me… :-)
