Product description

The veloheld bike shows how pure cycling can be. It was renounced of all unnecessary things like gear shift or excessive graphics.

A short wheelbase, a single gear and a narrow handlebar are the only equipment you need to explore the city.

The creators of the veloheld, among them a former member of the track race national team, reduce their bikes to the absolutely necessary parts. Furthermore they offer them in two minimalistic colour versions: the white-model, only contrasting by some black components and the black model where even the smallest nut is all black.

Because of the limited number of 100 bikes in 2008 every bike is tagged only with the current serial- and model number behind the Veloheld logo at the top tube – nothing more.

For all who want to create their bike themselves the veloheld frames in 3 sizes and 2 colours are the perfect starting point.
