meet the budnitz ‘model no.3’, the latest evolution of the company’s ultimate all-around city bicycle. completely re-engineered from the ground up, the do-anything bicycle is for fast and fun city riding, and every day commuting. the new ‘no.3’ twin tube single arc cantilever frame features elegant double curved down tubes that increases lateral stiffness for speed while absorbing road shock for comfort. the layout is available in a titanium frame that weighs just 3.6 pounds.

clean and silent, the carbon belt drive weighs a third of a traditional bike chain and won’t get rider’s pants dirty. buyers have a choice of single-speed or up to 14 speeds and a massive 526% gear range in a high-tech internal hub from rohloff or shimano. big 29 inch wheels and 2.35 inch tires, combined with a long wheelbase and aggressive geometry make the model equally at home on pavement, cobblestones, rough asphalt, and dirt.

  • That is an absurdly cool bike, but I wouldn’t use it as a city bike unless I could park it in a vault wherever I went. With as expensive of a bike as it must be, I wouldn’t want to leave it locked up on the street anywhere, really.
