Caferacer SOLO Men:
In short - a beautiful, classic bike with a sensible price. The Caferacer Solo has all the features you need to ride every day with speed and comfort. The bike is loaded with great parts that will ensure smooth and efficient functioning. And it and looks unlike anything else on the market. For light weight and ultimate style you can choose a single-speed model, or if you prefer, you can go for the 3 speed version with an internal gear hub that is clean and service-free.
Lugged hi-ten steel frame and fork, “albatross” style alloy handlebars, Tektro brakes, alloy cranks, Joytech front hub, Shimano Nexus 3-speed rear hub (or Joytech single-speed hub), VP pedals, Rigida rims, Velo saddle, Schwalbe tires, LED battery lights front and rear.
The Caferacer commuter bike's design is influenced by hand built porteur bicycles of the 50's and 60's. The semi-upright position will give you a perfect balance between comfort and speed, whilst the front rack will be ideal for carrying your groceries, laptop or just about anything else that you need to take with you. But take note that the Caferacer is not only practical but also exceptionally beautiful. Look closer at the paint job and the finish of the parts. You will find some rare features not commonly found in todays bicycles, like hand polished rims and a lugged frame and fork, making this machine a treat for bike connoisseurs. However, you don't have to be a bicycle mechanic to ride this bike every day - there are no external derailleurs, no adjustment knobs, and all Caferacers feature very clean cable routing. All this will give you a classic looking bicycle that is a pleasure to use every day.
