Urban and Commuter Bikes
It’s true. The revolution is here. Viva la Mantra-7! We’ve turned our esteemed fixed-gear model into a seven-speed all-the-time bike. The Mantra-7 sports the same beloved features as our single-speed, but is now slightly more robust and up for the most vigorous of rides. With the multi-speed drivetrain, you can get up hills and trails better and faster with less exertion and exhaustion. Shimano is a veteran in the cycling industry. The Shimano Altus seven-speed drivetrain is known for its reliability, durability, and ultra smooth ride. Shifting with the RevoShift grip shifter is also easy, intuitive, and precise. The quick response time is ideal for aggressive and accurate riding. The Mantra-7 flaunts the same time-trusted, hardwearing, long-lasting UrbanComfort frame. It’s hand-built. It’s tig-welded. It’s double-butted. It’s high-tensile strength steel. It’s lightweight. Together these qualities make up one helluva commuter bike, primed for all sorts of scenarios, whether you’re riding to work or home or 50 miles inland just because. The frame and fork have bar spin clearance, horizontal droupouts, and no toe overlap. We’ve zeroed in on the quality of riding experience and have incorporated only the best parts and pieces. We handpick every component that goes on our bikes, and the Mantra-7 is no different. Front and rear brakes give you more control and keep you safer. You can stop your bike immediately as needed. Super deep-V rims with machined braking surface, a KMC chain, VP freestyle pedals, and Wanda tires lay a perfect foundation for an impressively smooth ride. This is the ultimate commuting machine.
The Venus seven-speed step-thru city bike is the perfect traveling companion for any and all of your outings. Equipped with a Shimano Altus seven-speed drivetrain, you can do just about anything on this bike. Ride from home to work, from work to market, from market to your mom’s, from your mom’s to class (Jeez! You’re really busy!), and then back again. The Venus city bike line flaunts a vintage-inspired charm. Between the chrome headlight, mid-century bell, frame-matching fenders, and polished rear rack, you’ll be certain this bike is straight out of Leave it to Beaver. Stay comfortable on plush vegan grips and saddle. Dual braking will also keep you safe. Front and rear brakes make certain your ride is in your control. Even the Kenda commuter tires will improve your excursions. With water dispersion grooves, your tires will always make contact with the ground, even in wet conditions. The Venus seven-speed city bike is built around a hand-built, tig-welded, high-tensile strength steel step-thru frame. This style of frame was traditionally intended for Victorian-era women to accommodate big bulky dresses. Today, however, this frame style is popular among men and women because of the lower standover height, making getting on and off the bike much easier. With the progressive geometry of this model, you’ll also be compelled to ride in a more upright position, reducing strain on your back and neck for an ultimately more comfortable ride.
You know the Mantra. But now it’s time to meet the Mantra 2.0. It’s been designed and built with the same kind of love and enthusiasm for cycling. Our newest version of our classic fixed-gear / single-speed bike now comes standard with front and rear Promax brakes and machined sidewall rims. This set of brakes is precise with quick response time. Now with dual braking, you have exponentially more control over your ride, your speed, and, of course, your stopping. Our UrbanComfort frame is hand-built, tig-welded, double-butted, and lightweight. The high-tensile strength steel diamond frame is the perfect riding companion as you cycle your way to work and home and play and everything in between. The frame and fork have bar spin clearance, horizontal dropouts, and no toe overlap. The Mantra 2.0 comes standard with sealed cartridge bearing hubs to keep your bike clean and healthy. Less dampness, water, and grime can get into the delicate parts of your bike when the hubs are sealed. This means less required maintenance and a longer living bicycle. The Mantra 2.0 is just as versatile as its predecessors. It’s also equipped with a flip-flop hub, which means you can ride your bike either as a fixed-gear or a single-speed with a freewheel. When you ride on a fixed-gear, every motion you make moves the bike. You always have to be moving if you want the bike to be moving. When you ride on a single-speed bike, the rear wheel is free-moving so you can cruise without having to pedal. The Mantra 2.0 comes installed on the single-speed side. This is a bike you can ride regularly and quickly and easily transform into a fixed-gear whenever you like.
Transcend time and space with the Venus single-speed step-thru city bike. Its timeless silhouette will ride with you as you navigate campus and city streets. This bike is simplicity evolved, a single-speed that will never leave you wanting more. The step-thru style frame sports a downward angled top tube, creating a significantly shorter standover height. The shorter standover height makes mounting and dismounting the bike much easier, regardless of attire. Originally designed with Victorian-garbed female riders in mind, the step-thru frame has gained popularity among both men and women for its ease of use and comfortable riding. Our frame is hand-built and tig-welded high-strength steel for longevity and reliability. The frame geometry is designed to encourage upright riding positions, improving posture and reducing discomfort in your back. The Venus & Mars city bike line features classic accessories reminiscent of the 1950s, including a vintage-inspired chrome headlight, a mid-century bell, frame-matching fenders, and a polished rear rack. Plush vegan grips and saddle will keep you comfortable while front and rear brakes keep you safe. With dual braking, you have more control over your ride, speed, and stopping. Kenda commuter tires grip the road, even when it’s wet. The unique tread pattern allows liquid to travel through water dispersion grooves, never compromising your control over the road.
