The Castro M1c features a 3-Speed 70mm drum brake rear hub which is perfect for for all city terrains. The internal cable routing helps to maintain its sleek exterior.
The Castro M1 has been designed with an attention to detail that which will satisfy the needs of even the most picky urban cyclist. It is both stable and resistant with its sleek, light, and flexible design which takes up so little space in your home that you won’t even need to think about where you’ll store it.
The M1 is a small bicycle (it has 20” wheels, the same size as a Moulton and weighs about 10.5 kgs) but is just as comfortable as a full sized bike. Its reduced dimensions allow for excellent agility around the city and fast acceleration. The stainless steel frame is perfectly complimented by the black and silver components.
Whether you’re riding to work, to see your friends, for coffee, or just riding for the fun of it, it won’t let you down.
As well as being a ‘mini’ bike, it’s also incredibly SLIM thanks to its well thought out design. With just two simple movements – turn the handle bar and pull out the quick release pedals – the bike becomes very flat and needs only 23cm of space. It’s perfect for storing in small apartments and even comes with a wall bracket so you can hang it like the piece of art that it is.a
