BYK E-540 x 3i Commuter Black
ByK designer Warren Key has considered every component to increase strength and lower the overall weight.
Design: The lightweight Alloy frame is customised to reduce weight and improve handling. We have also fitted the strongest wheels we could find, with more spokes for strength - 36 per wheel, eyelit rims and excellent quality stainless steel spokes. We know it won't completely remove problems with buckled wheels, kids are kids after all, but this will save time for fix-ups!
Performance: Another crucial design ingredient to the clever design is the improved control and bump dampening ability of our CRM forks - giving a dramatic advantage in handling and comfort.
Models: For the girls range we have two great options. The super cool SRAM I motion 3 speed internal gears without a footbrake, this bike in available in the standard form or in the very popular retro version. Or for the more adventurous the high performance minded, the SRAM 16 speed trigger shifter system.
For boys and the extra sporty minded we have made sure no gadget has been overlooked. All models use the highly acclaimed SRAM cassette gearing system and the incredibly lightweight ByK RGO frame. The coolest new add on is Shimano disc brakes on the E540x16D with resin pads, great brakes, no squeal and no harmful stuff.
Safety: The custom-sized V-Brakes we have used are calibrated for power and ergonomic fit. The innovative frame improves balance and control to help each rider operate at the safest level possible.
