SPECIAL EDITION ROADSTER
A new take on the Roadster Classic. The Avanti 1 has hand painted rims, wrapped bar tape, Continental tires, and a beautiful high polish alloy crank with fluted detailing.
We apply a second layer of protective clear coat to the paint. It’s more work for us but it makes the paint stronger and more resilient for you. Two coats are better than one.
Wherever possible, we've chosen to make all the nuts, bolts, and washers on our bikes out of stainless steel. Stainless is much more resistant to rust than your typical chrome plated hardware. This small detail extends the life of your bike and helps to preserve its good looks.
The flat surface of a head set is a place where water often settles and over time rust develops. That's why we chose to make our sets out of aluminum so they don’t rust.
This bike is internally geared, which means you have the benefit of multiple gears without a cumbersome derailleur. For city riding, internal gears have many advantages. They are extremely reliable, require very little maintenance, you can shift without pedaling, and they're very easy to use.
This bike has sealed bearings in the front hub. The advantages of sealed bearings over loose bearings are less friction, no maintenance, and more resistant to grit, grime and weather, making for smooth rides and extending the life of the bike.
We use 13 Gauge stainless steel spokes on the rear wheel because they are thicker and stronger than the standard 14 Gauge. Stronger spokes make stronger wheels, which is great when carrying extra weight like groceries or toddlers over bumpy city streets.

*Note: Some riders may be a little outside these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller size. Standover height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden. As long as the rider can reach the ground while sitting on the saddle, even if it's just their toes, this size will be compatible with their height.
