The Caféracer's design is influenced by handbuilt French "porteur" bicycles of the 50's and 60's. The semi-upright riding position provides the perfect balance of comfort and speed, while the front rack is ideal for carrying your groceries, laptop or just about anything else that you need to take with you.And, take note that the Café racer is not only practical with its 7-speed internal gearing, but also exceptionally beautiful. Look closer at the paint job and the finish of the parts. Each Creme bicycle is handcrafted with the finest selection of materials and special attention to details, adding style to your ride and outliving more than a few pairs of jeans.
·Lugged Steel Frames:
Steel tubing mated with socket-like sleeves, called lugs, take a high level of craftsmanship that results in a better aesthetic and better overall ride.
· Hand Painted:
Designed to thrive in urban environments, our bikes are hand painted in Europe with not one, not two, but three layers. Thick paint goes a long way to protect the finish of your bike from the elements.
· Custom Grips:
High density silicone grips are vibration dampening so you can better enjoy your ride.
· Leather Washers:
Quality down to the most minute detail, leather washers silence your ride over bumps and elevate the look of the bike’s mudguards, fenders, and chain covers.
· Lightweight Wheels:
Alloy or alloy anodized rims, quality branded tires, and stainless-steel spokes are durable and lightweight, helping you climb up hills with ease.
· Custom Pedal Cages:
Standard cages tear up the everyday shoes of commuters, so we designed new ones to be used by shoes as delicate as ballerina slides.
· Aluminium Cranks:
Polished to perfection, our cranks are made to be stiffer and more efficient.
· Low Maintenance Internal Hub:
The internal gear hub protects the gears from the elements and leads to less wear and tear. There are no misalignment issues when shifting causing your gears to ‘crunch’. Tune ups are as easy as aligning two dots, meaning you can do minor adjustments yourself.
