Hand-built bikes in the USA. Using Columbus steel tubing and S-and-S couplings the bikes can be easily disassembled and packed into their signature waxed canvas and leather carrying case. The case’s 29 X 29 inch dimensions ensure that the bike can be checked onto airplanes with no oversized baggage fee. This unique feature allows for easy assembly/disassembly – with only one simple tool to put them back together. The company was founded in 2006 by artist/designer team of Nathaniel Freeman and Benjamin Ferencz, both of whom travel frequently and were frustrated by the expense of shipping their bikes... refusing to go bikeless, Freeman and Ferencz decided to design it themselves. Both fixed-gear and commuter racer models available.
