Hopefully it's a step towards a full BIXI style bike program for you guys.

Sure looks like a great bike!
Is the seat locked to the bike? I like the idea that it's adjustable, but it also means it can be removed easily.

Also, do they have any 'step-through' frames? Step-throughs might make it more appealing to women...heck even I ride a partial step-through :p


The seat post has a kick-release to make it more easily adjustable. That rubber tube conceals a cable that will keep the seat and post from walking away. The bikes apparently come in a smaller frame size and a larger frame size. I still had to pop up the seat a bit for me on a larger frame size.


On a hilarious note - these bikes do not have the legal minimum of reflectors. I don't see any reflective tape on the front or rear forks. I don't have reflective tape either, nor does any cyclist that I know of. I think the police do have reflective tape on their bikes, though.


@ damatos. The bikes do have the reflector minimum (one white at front on the basket and one red at the read, on the seat) but not the reflective tape. I posted once on how I could not find that reflective tape in several bike shops I canvassed. One sales guy had blue reflective tape! A fashion statement, I guess.

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
