the ‘viks‘ urban fixed gear commuter bike is made entirely from stainless steel tubes, featuring two identically shaped cylindrical frames  to form its body. developed by estonian engineer indrek narusk and owner of velonia bicycles, the design of ‘viks’ draws styling cues from cafe racer-style motorcycles and classic streamlined aesthetics. conceived without a seat tube, the overall construction is joined at the head tube and bottom bracket, with the fork and handle bar coming together as a single piece. crowns, dropouts, and welds are all also composed entirely of stainless steel tubes.
