OK, #LdnOntBike, we're maturing as a cycling city, so I've been thinking a lot about what we need in our store to meet that demand. Who's ready for a sneak preview of our amazing new City Bikes for 2020?
OK, this is pretty unanimous... here goes.
*INTRODUCING* Fahrradmanufaktur!
(literally "bike maker" in German)
High quality city & touring bikes, Made in Germany
We're going to carry two models in-stock (we'll get to those), but have access to their whole catalog by special order. They have an incredible selection of drool-worthy bikes with options like Pinion gearboxes, belt-drive systems, and more!
The premium model we'll carry in-house is the T-100 (demo model available next week!). It's available in two quality-crafted chromoly steel frames (mid-step, and roadster), and can help you do virtually anything on a bike.
Everyday commute? You bet. Ride to Port Stanley? Absolutely. Little bit of gravel? No problem. Carry your kids? Yep! Slow roll to the pub? Sign me up.
If you only have one bike, it should be the T-100.
Let's talk specs. There are lots of options for drivetrain, but what we'll stock is the 8-speed Shimano Nexus internal gear hub with a 307% gear range. But there's more to love. All the "extras" are done perfectly on this bike 👇
Amazing European kit comes standard:
▶️ Dynamo lights💡 - Front: Busch&Müller Upp, 30 LUX, Rear: B&M Toplight
▶️ Hebie Chainglider, fully enclosed chain
▶️ Racktime Eco 2.0 rear rack
▶️ Humpert Ergotec, Octopus adjustable angle stem
▶️ Pletscher Zoom, kickstand
... and more
Frame sizes:
Mid-Step: 45, 50, 55 cm
Roadster: 52, 57, 62 cm
This amazing machine can be yours for an incredible price: $1599.99, (available for pre-order now)
[finance from $63 monthly]
I think it's a *steal* for the enjoyment and lifelong quality you'll get from the T-100.
Our second model for 2020 is the T-50. It's certainly no slouch, and offers a few benefits vs. the T-100 (including lower price!). It's lighter weight, has a very low-step frame available, in addition to the mid-step and roadster styles.
The T-50 is made of lightweight aluminium, and comes standard with a Shimano Nexus 7 Internal Gear Hub. It has a little less gear ratio than the 8-speed, but not much, and in London it's more than enough for the hills. Optional upgrade to 8sp Nexus, or 24sp Derailleur.
The T-50 comes with most of the sweet kit found on the T-100.
▶️ Dynamo lights💡 - Front: AXA Compactline, 20 LUX, Rear:AXA Slim LED
▶️ Full (but not enclosed) chainguard
▶️ Racktime Eco 2.0 rear rack
▶️ Humpert Ergotec, Octopus adjustable angle stem
▶️ Selle Royale saddle
Frame sizes:
Low-Step & Mid-Step: 45, 50, 55 cm
Roadster: 52, 57, 62 cm
Even better price: $1099.99, (available for pre-order now)
[finance from $43 monthly]
WOW. That's a lot of bike for not a lot of $.
Finally, there's one more trick up Fahrradmanufaktur's sleeve, and that's a miniature cargo bike! The T-50 Cargo hasn't even hit stores in Europe yet, but you can get it as early as March 2020! Look at this amazing little machine! 😍😍😍
The T-50 Cargo will ship with all the nice little things: Busch and Muller lights, super-sturdy Racktime carriers, Hebie Chainglider, Pletscher Kickstand, and Schwalbe Big Apple tires. Plus powerful disc brakes for stopping your grocery load from running away. Price: $2099.99.
All of Fahrradmanufaktur's lineup is manufactured in Germany🇩🇪. The frame quality, paint quality, and attention to detail are out of this world. These bikes are available in an array of colours by special order (all stock models are elegant ebony black). fahrradmanufaktur.de/en/farbwelt.php
From my perspective, thinking about urban cycling every day, these bikes offer such incredible value. For someone who has been using their bike casually, and thinking about an upgrade, they are worth the investment. For someone new to everyday riding, it's a great introduction.
Demo T-100's will land next week, T-50 and T-50 Cargo demos will land in mid-March! We're stoked about these bikes, and hope you will be, too! Pre-orders for March 31 delivery get FREE 6-month zero-interest financing on your deposit. #LdnOntBike #ToTheGroceryStoreAndBeyond
