1-1-0 / Bicycle


The 1-1-0 is a sprung-frame commuter bicycle for those who prefer a comfortable ride on a solid bicycle. The design is meant to be simple and reliable, without requiring the rider to perform a great deal of setup prior to riding or maintenance afterwards. The absence of a down tube allows the steel's natural flexibility to provide cushioning for uneven road surfaces, as well as catching the eye of bicycle lovers. The slight change in wheelbase that results from the suspended frame during shock absorption did not affect handling characteristics during test rides.
The eccentric rear hub mount allows the chain to be well-tensioned.
