Road Plus bikes give riders the versatility and speed to do almost anything! Rack it, fender it, take it out for a group ride or do a quick trip to your favourite lakeside campsite. The new Romulus now comes with WTB’s new tire, the Byway. At 650 x 47c, it also has a File tread on the edges for better off road control, with a slick centre for the pavement portion. The Romulus is perfect for the daily riders who want a bicycle capable of more than just "point-A to point- B". When the weekend lands they're packing their seatpacks and handlebar rolls to escape for a day or two of hammock-camping bliss
