You won't find a bike this cool or this bright from any other manufacturer. A fast commuter for all seasons, built on the versatile Volpe platform. Ready to rock out of the box, with a front hub that houses a Dynamo-driven 3 watt, 12 volt bulb; full fenders; and Vittoria Randonneur (French for running around) tires with a built-in 3M reflective stripe on each sidewall. With road bars and a 9-speed drivetrain, this bike is for the savvy commuter who wants the versatile riding positions that drop bars offer, and the simplicity of one-sided shifting with no front derailleur. The gear range will surprise you, with 43 inches on the low end to 103 inches on the high end. Priced around 800 bucks, this is a great deal for a unique ride.
