If you drew a 6 mile radius around your home or work place, and said “I’m going to drive as little as possible in this circle, I want the perfect bike for that. I don’t have time to maintain a bike and want something that won’t let me down” you’d be thinking how we think.
If you’ve been commuting by bike for years, you know how great it feels. The CB1 is designed to maximize the joy of that ride. If you’re thinking about bike commuting, we know the challenges. The CB1 is there to get you excited to grab your bike from the garage and hit the road.
The frame uses Columbus Cromor tubing, designed to stand up to years of hard city abuse. The geometry is based around the idea of moving fast, while staying comfortable. The Shimano Alfine S7000 drive train is simple and virtually maintenance free. Stopping in all weather conditions is important as hell, so no cutting corners; we use Shimano M445 hydraulic disc brakes.
The CB1 was created for your 6 mile radius. With attention to detail yet maintaining ease of use, comfort, efficiency, quality, and style; it’s clean, simple and reliable. Equipped with everything you need to hit the streets and have a blast in your urban jungle.
