All Bicycles are Made in house by the Horse Cycles Workshop in Brooklyn, NY. All materials are sourced from the U.S.A. The bicycle tubing is high quality True Temper double butted 4130 steel alloy. This paired with our tig-welded construction produces a responsive, lightweight and durable bicycle that will last a life time. Each bike comes equipped with cantilever brake mounts, water bottle bosses, and rack / fender mounts, making it a versatile and rugged do-anything bicycle. We have our hand on each step of the process to ensure the highest quality product. Ride it to your local farmers market, down to the beach, or load it up for a cross country tour.
Detailed geometry can be found with the product images. We have stayed true to the original design and most of the geometries. Both the seat tube and the head tube have responsive angles. This allows the bike to preform best in all areas. The Nimble set up is perfect for riding though the city or tearing through a Cross course and controlled enough for those 80+ mile rides up through the palisades. Chain stay length has been kept to a minimum while still allowing room for 38mm tires optimizing acceleration and reared responsiveness.
Fork rake is set at 47mm across the board with is perfect for a controlled Cross race and responsive Urban riding. Though not meant for a heavy load, the front end tracks beautifully for lighter touring and on longer rides.
