GROWLER City Bike by Joey Ruiter

Comparing the aesthetic of GROWLER City Bike to the typical lightweight, thin-frame city bike is like describing the differences between Kandinsky’s line drawings and Dürer’s precision prints. There is freedom and boldness in the form of GROWLER, from the fat 29-inch wheels to the devil-may-care curve in the middle of the frame. Even the beverage holder is an audacious statement: a hefty gallon of fuel for long rides. Designed by Joey Ruiter, the bike makes a statement with its presence, which is all the more formidable with its all-black appearance. Other features include a monarch springer front end and a two-speed internal kickback hub, but rest assured that the visual impact of GROWLER is the most noteworthy of them all.
