First we see what seems to be a men's 26" roadster with caliper brakes a modern crank and a very interesting leather seat...not to mention very pretty grey tires. Would be a nice starting point for customization
Next we have a very bright metallic bluemens frame, with what appears to be 700 tires and a DERAILLEUR! Very interesting indeed! Now, beyond the fancy rims take a look at the lugs. Can't see them? OK...let's zoom in.
Chromed/Polished lugs. Very nice indeed. We can also see that they are utilizing some nice quality components here including Radius Brand calipers.
Next up is a stepthrough frame. Things to notice here:
1. Rod brakes.
2. Very interesting tail-light
3. A full chain cover...but not a case. Also the crank appears to be a modern one and not a cottered crank.
4. The seat. The seat not only appears to be two-toned leather but has holes drilled on the bottom perimeter for lacing. Nice touch.
And now for the next bike! Path Racer anyone
A quick look at this bike reveals yet another leather seat variant. I hadn't mentioned handlebars before, but clearly there are several varieties here. The show piece on the this bike is the "Phoenix" branded chain ring on a modern crank. Very nice indeed. Then there is the leather tool-roll on the back. Again this is a very nice touch!
Last bike for this post
Once again, we see a different seat, and a diffferent chain ring. It's difficult to say but it looks like the frame MAY have a different geometry and construction. Need I mention that each of the 5 bikes pictured above comes in a different color? 5 bikes, 5 colors. Indeed things are looking up in Shanghai we could only hope that these bikes and parts become generally available....soon!
