BIKEID Metal Editions

Like their classic line, the Diamond limited metal editions have a 22″ frame made out of durable Chromoly steel which is stronger than regular steel and lighter than aluminum. The bike comes in at a total weight of only 25 lbs and has an automatic two-speed gear system. The color-matched hand made leather grips are from Beau Veló in Paris. They also offer minimalist BIKEID mudguards as an optional add-on.
