Simplicity, Form and Function Unite
Don’t judge the Linus Roadster Classic by its simplicity. In fact, this bike offers all the appurtenances of a quality bike, and provides an excellent ride experience with minimal maintenance. Linus models their designs on bicycles appearing in 1950’s and 60’s French cinema. At their office in Los Angeles, they merge classic design with modern.
The Roadster features a completely steel frameset. With aluminum components for durability and longevity, the bike remains relatively lightweight. No matter how well shifting technology progresses, the single-speed set-up will always have a place in our hearts, so we were pleased to see Linus making a bicycle of superior quality right here in Southern California.
With a stable ride-feel, shift-free pedaling, and coaster brakes, the Roadster Classic brings the bicycle back to its origins and rekindles the joy that comes from riding on two wheels. This bike would be perfect for anyone looking for an easy-to-use and hassle-free city bike that will last forever. It is an excellent bike for non-bicyclist friends and family as well. -VP ($429, linusbike.com, available at The Unlikely Cyclist, bike shop profiled in Issue #131)
