designer's own words:

Seoul Rider - Laurence Fielding

Unique two tube design gives a distinctive timeless design while the lower number of component parts, help reduce manufacturing costs.

With a saddle that is designed to have the characteristics of a leather horse riding saddle, and the ability to sit two. You are looking at a modern classic.

The frames design is inspired by vintage Vespers but also achieves practical advantages over existing frame designs. With built in pannier racks and a low stand over height make this the perfect urban bike. The frame is designed to take single sided hub that reduces weight. The frame also has several areas for battery storage for a hybrid bike option.

The Hard wood pannier slats are inspired by roof racks found on classic Volkswagen Beatles
