Constructed with Nova Cycles Road tubing with custom fabricated lugs and stem, designed for city living.

Inspired by vintage French delivery bikes, this Porteur-style frame is the ideal bike for a city commuter.  Built with a vintage 3-speed internal Sturmey Archer hub, shifting between speeds at intersesctions, or climbing bridges, could not be easier and more effective.  The custom stainless steel racks, front and rear, make for an easy and sturdy carriage of bulky cargo.  The reduced rear end geometry shortens the bike, making it easier to carry up tight staircases, or store in New York size apartments, as well as giving the bike responsive lean-steering.  The low-trail front end helps stabalize weight on the racks, and offers smooth handling for the rider.  

Components :: Sturmey Archer 3-speed internal rear hub, Velo Orange rims, Sugino 600 cranks and brakes, Nitto bars, Brooks saddle and wraps, Hancho fenders
