The Urban Bike (Singapore) – Press Release: The Urban Bike City Rider: for the city by the city.
The Urban Bike started out by bringing to our shores the beautifully crafted Schindelhauer bicycles from Germany. Founder Lem Cheng Hai took his passion for cycling to the next level by designing his own bikes. Boldly taking on the delicate move of working with titanium and incorporating the use of carbon drive belt system – The Urban Bike’s CITY RIDER came to fruition.
Much kudos must be given for the fact that the CITY RIDER is Singapore’s first very own carbon belt-driven titanium bicycle. The sand blasted raw finish gives it a gritty edginess, and combined with a few selected vintage leather components, such as leather grips and saddle, for that extra touch of class, it gives off an air of elegant sophistication that will sure to get some attention when you’re zipping down the streets.
The bike is packed with features you don't see on other higher priced premium titanium bikes. Simplicity in design and yet functional. Beautiful, built to last, grease-free, almost zero maintenance needed, quiet, clean, and a lifetime investment.
The Urban Bike knows exactly what it’s aiming for and has been aptly designed to meet those expectations, which is a chilled out street bike for daily commuting that focuses on convenience and easy maintenance. Perhaps we have been spoilt for choice with our usual platter of high speed, high performance, high tech bikes, so it’s always nice to see a bike, especially a local effort at that, to take us back to what cycling was all about to begin with: a means of exploring the city at your own leisurely pace.
The CT-1.2-11SP would be officially launched together with 2 other new models on 8th July 2018 at the EUROBIKE, Germany, Hall B4 Booth 214. International dealers and retailers are welcome.
