Elegant, lean and clean. Meet the Cube Editor.
A super lightweight urban bike – elegant and with a lean and clean look. The Cobalt 2 stem/handlebar combo made by Crankbrothers draws attention with its distinctive color. Disc brakes make the riding safe whether in the city or on leisure rides. Thanks to the particularly stiff 3D dropouts the triple butted Aluminum Superlite frame is very rigid. Internal Cable Routing preserves the clean appearance and keeps maintenance low. The 11 speed Shimano Alfine internal gear hub comes with a broad gear range.

Martone Gramercy, a bicycle born with an eye for fashion.
Martone Cycling Company is a fashion- and design-driven bike company. Their bikes are a bold statement of personal style: city bikes, created with passion—with a red chain on every bike they make. Martone believes that, if you’re like them, you’re always carrying something: a tote, a gym bag, groceries, a dog…who knows? That’s why all of their bikes have a basket built into the handlebars, to make your life easier, in style.
A bike that looks as good as it rides? There’s more then meets the eye, here: each MCC bike is powered by SRAM’s innovative duomatic gear system, which automatically adjusts and changes gears based on the speed you’re riding. Its an entirely unique riding experience – and one you’ll find only on their bikes.

The Pocket Llama was designed to expand your horizons.
Bike Friday has taken the classic frame design that made the New World Tourist Bike Friday’s king of touring, and built the prince of the mountain. The Llama has added bracing to beef up its sturdy frame, a raised bottom bracket to help you clear a rock, root or curb, and wide forks so you can slap on a pair of wide knobbies or cushy cruisers up to 2.25 inches.
Riding the off-road wave, we added front and rear Avid disc brakes to handle whatever elements you want to endure — the mud and sand of the trails, or oil and grit of the city.
Like all Bike Fridays, the Pocket Llama quick-folds in seconds for easy storage and transport, so you can throw it in the trunk and head for the hills or fly it out to the Divide in a TravelCase.
