Available in Canada bike stores, US bikes stores spring 2013
This bike is designed for comfort with builtin, matching fenders, well-placed kickstand, and a chainguard so I didn’t get chain oil on myself, for once! The built-in rear rack easily hooked my basket on, which made the bike look like something out of an ad for daisies and mineral water.

The key word with this bike is comfort. From the padded grips to the cushy seat, I felt totally comfortable at all times. I found my posture actually improved. Everything is set up so naturally that it felt more in line with the bike to sit as straight (but not tense) as possible.
This bike is such a beauty and so comfortable that my only suggestions would be whimsical or cosmetic – maybe a flower holder on the handlebars or a tiny robot that whispers into your ear.
This is the bike for an “Urbanista.” A city bike that can take you from home to the beach to the bar and then home again. For regular commuting you’re probably going to want a bike that is a little more responsive. Luckily though, it’s light enough to carry up a flight or two of stairs. I would love to keep this bike (mid-thirties, moderate to heavy frequency of trips) and my mom should totally get one, too.
As soon as I picked this bike up people gushed over the design, the paint job and how comfy it looked. I felt happy taking this bike everywhere, and felt particularly at home riding to the beach in the sun.
This bike was generously put together by OPUS.
