View all 15 Photos

Bikers come in all shapes and sizes so it’s no surprise that bikes have adapted to contour to the many needs of the urban cyclist. But no matter your preference, one can help but drool over the exquisite sleekness of the Castro M1 all-purpose bike. Based out of Barcelona, the designers at Castro Bikes set out to inspire people to take to the wheel and live a healthier, more active lifestyle as a cyclist. They knew that the best way to encourage this movement was to deliver the most alluring, well-crafted designs they could fathom; and this is where the M1 came to fruition. Utilizing minuscule 20” wheels and weighing in at 10.5 kg (23 lbs), the M1 maximizes agility with its slim frame and can be folded in no time to occupy only 23 cm (9 inches) of space, ensuring it can fit into any routine you throw at it. The bike oozes style with its incredibly nimble frame design, composed of only a few bold strokes of stainless steel coated in black and silver, and comes available in either a 2-speed or 3-speed model to further meet your wonted needs. The team at Castro is committed to bringing not only a sleek machine, but a quality product that will last a lifetime, with parts sourced from only the top brands and the entire design and assembly process maintained locally in Barcelona. Their passion for such beautiful designs is what drives them to bring products like the M1 to market, and in turn the bike will hopefully help drive people of all shapes and sizes to forge a more proactive lifestyle. So whether biking to work or to meet up with friends, the Castro M1 can adapt to your needs. Buy here.
