Constructed with Nova Cycles Road tubing with custom lugs, stem, racks, and fenders. Designed for city riding.

This bike was designed for a novice rider who lives in a four story walk-up, so it had to be easy to operate, easy to carry up a tight stairwell, and classy as can be.  The frame geometry is compact, easy to step through, and affords the rider an upright riding position.  The lugged construction is strong with elegant curves and heart details.  Custom stainless rear rack offers a place for carry-alomg items, and custom wood fenders and rack top offer protection from road grit while keeping the bike's base weight to a minimum, also classy as can be.  The custom stem matches the top tube ascending line and has a wood heart rear cap insert to match the other wood details throughout.
