There's a Brevet on the Bikes For sale page. The seller does not know how old it is. Looking back through the archived brochures, there are two for the Brevet: 2003 and 2007.  From the brochure content I can find nothing that would pin this bike to a specific year. Any ideas?

Many thanks.
Joe

Hello,
The Brevet advertised is at least 12 years old. The colour is excellent in 'the flesh' and those models rode exceptionally well!
If its your size, buy it as you will not be disappointed. If you do and are disappointed, blame me!
Regards,
John
