similar to the viks urban fixed gear commuter bike, the ‘anniveloversary’ edition by estonian engineer indrek narusk and owner of velonia bicycles, draws styling cues from cafe racer-style motorcycles and classic streamlined aesthetics. the new iteration is made entirely from stainless steel tubes, featuring cantilevered seating built with a robust metal structure. 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, which together, ensure a smooth ride over rugged terrain.

  • Where is the break?

    SY says:
  • It’s a fixed gear bike, no brake req

    Mike says:
  • Sculptural!
    One question, what is the rider weight limit?

    Miel says:
  • Just another one of those “radical, innovative” designs that’s obviously not meant to be ridden.

    Tony says:
  • Not a true fixed gear. The coaster brake arm is visible in the traditional place on the left chainstay.

    Burt Graber says:
  • Why take something practical (a bike of all things) and design it into a non practical thing? we’re 2014. pure design snobbism. apart from that: the design is very ugly.
    “smooth ride over rugged terrain”. LOL?

    orangegrey says:
  • @orangegray. The cantilever arm for the seat will flex some but it’s a missed opportunity the pivot for the front fork isn’t a shock absorber.

    Mort d'Urban says:
  • amazing design! but where are the breaks?

    kev says:
  • Hello,
    Great , when and where to buy?
