Inspired by the enduring French style of Porteur bicycles, first used by newspaper couriers in Paris, The Runwell delivers a classic blend of urban style and practicality. Meticulously designed to yield the best characteristics of a lugged steel frame and fork, we've engineered The Runwell to handle predictably and smoothly for city riding, commuting and errand running. Virtually maintenance free, courtesy of the high-end Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal hub, daily riders will never need to worry about adjustment, maintenance or exposure to rain and snow. Stopping power, in any weather condition, is assured with the quiet and smooth disc brakes. Internal cable routing keeps the cables out of sight and out of the elements. Racks and fenders fit easily onto the frame. Responsive and predictable handing, classic and enduring style, low-to-no maintenance, stopping power in any weather condition, with an American-made frame and fork—The Runwell is truly a unique and worthy voice in the crowd.
