This very attractive couple just moved here from Germany. They aren’t over weight at all, they are just ‘BIG BONED” But most importantly they have a personality like no others. All joking aside, the Retrovelo Klaus and Klara have earned the position of the store favorites.
Most of the European City bikes that we carry at A Street Bike Named Desire have a lot of similar characteristics. Hand made lugged steal frames, Brooks saddles, internal shifters and drum brakes. Overall well built bikes that are low maintenance and reliable.
The retrovelos have some unique features that really make them stand out from the others. The paint color and frame quality of both the Klaus and Klara are striking. While the bikes appear to be oversized, the one size geometry is designed to accommodate most riders. If you think the Fat Frank tires will slow you down, think again. In fact, what you gain by having the oversized tires is one of the smoothest riding bikes on the market. Full fenders, chain guard and generator light make the Retrovelos the ultimate city cruiser and commuter. You have to come test ride one of these beauties and see for yourself
We love these bikes! Can you tell?
