urwahn reinvents the bike frame in stadtfuchs V5F, made for rigorous city use

made for rigorous use in cities, the stadtfuchs by urwahn bikes is a sophisticated all-rounder that has reinvented the bike frame. the innovative new frame is made for every imaginable situation in any urban landscape. it blends ergonomic design, functionality and safety, resulting in an elastic rear-suspension that enables the bike to dampen any bumps, benefiting the user’s comfort.

urwahn bikes’ stadtfuchs steel frame was dimensioned and geometrized in consideration to the area of use, where the technical form and the ergonomic suitability of the steel frame were balanced to the aesthetic shape. the result is a compact geometry characterized by agile driving behavior, directional stability, improved traction and reduced steering forces, all related to humans and their role as users.

overall, the stadtfuchs features a form fitting that connects front and rear; an organic design that combines both hard and soft contours; a puristic backend with comfortable qualities; an ergonomic geometry with optimized handling; and the use of high strength CrMo steel together with seamless tube profiles that create higher stiffness. the sturdy steel frame/fork set has agility in abundance and stands out in a puristic manner without integrated LED and GPS tracking system.

  • Very handsome and practical looking. I’d have one – if not too expensive.

    Jimmy Xi says:
  • The bicycle frame constructed of a series of triangle is a triumph of engineering and physics – why would you walk away from such an elegant solution for strength and rigidity?

    Nick E-S says:
  • “why would you walk away……?” Because all my joints are disintegrating from the vibration and pounding which results from the strength, rigidity and “elegance” of the “solution.” Any other questions?
