USED Steel Bikes - Custom Singlespeed Bikes
There was a big focus on Singlespeed and Fixed Gear Bikes at the Bike Shows in Friedrichshafen, London and Vegas. USED was there and showing the new USED STEEL BIKE range. The sound of visitors smacking their lips and grabbing for the DigiCam was something we got USED to on the stand. The response was overwhelming.
The interest could be divided into two seperate camps. One group is interested in "retro" and bike culture and wants everything to be very authentic, while the second group is discovering Singlespeed as a way of moving through the city fast and comfortable and cares less for bike-protokol. With our USED STEEL BIKES we have something for both parties, beautiful lugged frame bikes for the Track or the Tour, but also the perfect Urban bike that is practical, multifunctional and stylish. With both types of bikes we chose function over the coolnessfactor.
Hot toddy - warm the cockles of your soul
We got a lot of questions about the abundance of Fixed Gear and Singlespeed bikes. Our opinion can be summed up with something Richard Ayling said about our bike range: "The difference between our bikes and some of the others offering similar bikes, can be compared to music: There's Punkrock and Jazz. It's all music, but the beat, the passion and the groove can be different, not right or wrong, just different. We are not Punkrockers, we are not building bikes for heroes, we're just playing jazz and if you catch our groove then feel free. There are a lot of grooves out there.”
Die Singlespeed USED URBAN STEEL BIKES sind aus einer Kooperation mit Allegro Bikes aus Melbourne, Australien, entstanden. Richard Ayling, Chef von Allegro, Track Fahrer und Jugendtrainer (u.a. Cadel Evans, Stuart O‘Grady und Robbie McEwan) hat eine sehr gute Arbeit geleistet: Diese Räder verschmelzen Schönheit und Funktion mit Zeitgeist und Attitude - Bikes für eine andere Welt.

The bikes have been made using the new Allegro Custom Tubing in double-butted Chrom-Moly-Steel. This material gives the frames stabilty and the flex steel riders have learned to appreciate.
