The BikeHard Urbanite is a perfect bike for the rider who wants smooth, fast, comfortable riding. The Octech aluminum frame is the foundation of the bike: Hand selected tubing is shaped into a uniquely stiff, strong, light frame. Small details like an overbuilt gusset below the downtube, forged window dropouts, and S-shaped stays provide ride quality unrivaled in the industry. The finest aluminum welding the world offers connects all parts of the frame, and then using a proprietary process, is brushed and clear coated to show the tubing and welding. Front suspension and a plush gel saddle positioned on a suspension seatpost makes even the worse bumps easy to maneuver over. Upright high rise handblebar and adjustable stem allow the rider to stay upright and comfortable. A shimano drivetrain with 21 speeds makes the bike a nimble climber. Super strong alloy wheels and all alloy parts ensure the maximum in rust resistance and durability. Designed as a pavement bike that can also handle some bike paths or grass fields, the parts, suspension, and frame are all designed with the attention to detail and quality worksmanship that will endure many years of riding.
