Sometimes, smaller brands can make the biggest impact and this BeUrban bike is a perfect example. Designed by Denis Rodriguez for the recently founded ROD Cycles, an artisanal bike manufacturer based in Paraguay, this bicycle offers a fresh, futuristic take on the classic commuting bicycle. The central focus of the sleek design is the graceful aluminum chassis that combines sharp curves with straight lines in a dynamic shape which also features an overhang at the rear.
This first model comes with a Gates transmission and a disc brake on the front wheel, as well as a racing handlebar for a more aggressive look. The bike will be released in the next few months in several versions that offer a range of features, materials, options, and colors, to suit various requirements and preferences. ROD Cycles aims to change the face of urban cycling, one beautifully crafted and designed bicycle at a time, and we’re more than happy to watch it unfold. Photo credits: ROD Cycles.
