Fly through town
Want to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible? A single speed is made for you. At just 11.6 kg, this bike offers all the light weight you need for riding quickly through town. The streamlined design, stiff steel frame, and 44x18 development give it the responsiveness you're looking for. It was designed with high-quality components for the best feelings as you ride.
An agile bike
With its steel fork, the single speed 500 absorbs impacts perfectly, easily tackling kerbs and other obstacles to tame the city! Its 520mm aluminium handlebars, as well as the 60mm aluminium stem, are assets for weaving through town as they increase your bike's responsiveness. Its 18T freewheel specific to FIXIE/BMX 30 steps (rather than 20 for a standard freewheel) provides better performance and balance.
While the speed 500 lets you ride fast, it also has excellent braking. Its calliper-type road brakes with cartridge pads increase the rigidity of the levers and provide better responsiveness and effective braking. This bike has aluminium wheels with double-walled rims, and its tyres (30 TPI weave) have nylon protection that greatly increases their puncture resistance.
Want to switch to fixie?
Please note, the bike is sold as a single speed. If you want to use it as a fixie, it has a flip/flop compatible rear hub. To switch to fixie mode, you need to buy the screw-on fixed cog (24 TPI threading, 1.37" diameter, standard) and the locknut (24 TPI, 1.29" diameter). Then turn the wheel. You can get these spare parts on our website, or in stores at one of our workshops.
Choosing the right size bike
The bike's size is a key factor.
The aluminium frame comes in 4 sizes:
Size S (1.50 m to 1.60 m)
Size M (1.60 m to 1.70 m)
Size L (1.70 m to 1.85 m)
Size XL (1.85 m to 2 m)
FYI: the bike has been designed to be agile and responsive. If you're in between two sizes, choose the smaller size for greater responsiveness, and the larger for greater comfort.
Sold with reflectors and lights that meet mandatory standards.
Compatible: road bike mudguard and under the saddle, segment lock with 2 frame attachment points, universal kickstand that attaches to the base of the bike.
