Culture

The Culture combines the advantages of various types of bicycles into one overall concept. Therefore this bicycle is as much at home in town as on an over land tour. Sophisticated ergonomics, easy handling and an extremely rigid swing arm assure confidence in every situation. The chain is completely encapsulated within the rear swing arm ensuring a protected chain and clean clothes. The Culture has a luggage rack with mounts for a child seat or a very large bicycle basket that can be fixed with a quick release.
