Our Utility bikes are built in limited batches right here in our workshop and often sell before we make them. To secure a build, please order above, or get in touch if you would prefer to place a deposit.
All our bikes come with access to discounted insurance with Yellow Jersey, so you can ride worry free (UK customers only).
Full details below and please get in touch to discuss your needs.
Sizing & Geometry
It's in the details....
Geometry optimised porteur style handlebar with integrated bell mount for better acoustic properties... Ok maybe not, but it does look very cool!
We also offer the bike with a flat bar, for those that prefer a more aggresive ride.
Bolt on cable guides, allows the bike to be cabled cleanily, whether you run it single speed or geared. You can even run the bike with a dropper post with an entry port for an internally routed dropper post.
Horizontal dropouts allow you to build the bike geared or single speed, or change it as your needs change. Donhou retention washers allow the use of a QR wheel, without the concerns of it moving in the horizontal dropout.
Where possible we have tried to reduce the environmental impact of the Utility bicycle.
We opted to go with a steel fork and handlebar/stem combination, as opposed to the other options of aluminium and carbon. Out of the three main "bicycle materials", when taking the impact of processing, recycled content, recyclability and life cycle into account, we deem steel as the best choice.
The recycled content of the steel tubing is no less than 80% accross the grades used to produce the Utility bicycle. (Please note that this is not unique to us, most steel alloys will have a high recycled content).
The bike is designed to be capable and adaptable, so it can take on several tasks that you may ask from it. Its adaptability also means that it will grow with you, as your lifetyle or needs change. In this sense we hope that it will serve you for a long time and in many cases that it will be your 'only bike'.
When specifing components, we also gave consideration towards their environmental impact. Some things, like drivetrains, our choices are very limited, but where we could we specified Grepps reusable bar tape. Schwalbe Green Compound recycled/recyclable rubber tyres, recycled plastic pedals and Brooks natural rubber saddles.
