A BIKE FOR THE PEOPLE
With an easy step-through frame, the Scout Is the perfect bike to explore your world. It’s also a good bike for either a man or woman, which works great if you are sharing a bike for one household or you need an extra bike for guests.
Our mid-century alloy bell alerts passers-by with a clear tone. It accents your bike with a flash of elegance and completes a pretty package.
Wherever possible, we’ve chosen to make all the nuts, bolts, and washers on our bikes out of stainless steel. Stainless is much more resistant to rust than your typical chrome plated hardware. This small detail extends the life of your bike and helps to preserve its good looks.
The flat surface of a head set is a place where water often settles and over time rust develops. That why we chose to make our sets out of aluminum so they don’t rust.
Leather Wrapped Grips
Hand-stitched genuine leather grips naturally absorb sweat and soften over time. If you ever had your skin against vinyl on a hot summer’s day, you’ll understand why we can’t compromise on genuine leather.
We apply a second layer of protective clear coat to the paint. It’s more work for us but it makes the paint stronger and more resilient for you. Two coats are better than one.
This bike has sealed bearings in the front hub. The advantages of sealed bearings over loose bearings are less friction, no maintenance, and more resistant to grit, grime and weather, making for smooth rides and extending the life of the bike.
We use 13 Gauge stainless steel spokes on the rear wheel because they are thicker and stronger than the standard 14 Gauge. Stronger spokes make stronger wheels, which is great when carrying extra weight like groceries or toddlers over bumpy city streets.

*Note: Some riders may be a little outside these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller size. Stand over height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden. As long as the rider can reach the ground while sitting on the saddle, even if it's just their toes, this size will be compatible with their height.
