Swobo Del Norte Track Bike

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

We took the look, style and simplicity of our track bike, Sanchez, and created the Del Norte. The main difference is that we designed the frame and fork dimensions for more versatile riding. Unlike the Sanchez, which is designed around narrow track bike dimensions and track hubs, Del Norte can accommodate a wider range of tires and traditional full fenders with stays. Wider tires means wider range of riding options. Skinny tires means a skinny range of riding options. We'll stop there.

Custom Swobo spec includes powder-coated red hubs, rims and chain; chromed steel drop bars and Swobo saddle with bottle opener. Dual-function pedals can be ridden with street shoes, or bike shoes with SPD cleats... if you think you have to...so 90's.

Strengths:    Looks, Tires, Bottle opener.

Weaknesses:    No fixie cog on the flip flop supplied.

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the 2008 Swobo Del Norte. There was no option of 2008. My bike is stock except that I added riser bars, grips and brakes. The bike rides great on the potholed streets of NYC. The 700x32 tires are awesome! The look of the bike is awesome, but it is definitely Love it or hate it. I love it. Iwill write a more technical review once I've had it for a while.

New bike: Swobo Del Norte

Bonktown had the Del Norte on sale for a pretty decent price recently, $370 plus shipping. I had been looking at replacing my old Nishiki because it's just too big and uncomfortable, even for the short rides to the subway and errands. I was going to order a Windsor TimeLine from bikes direct, but de ... Read More »

Swobo Del Norte

Just got a Swobo Del Norte. WOW! This thing is awesome. I sold my steel geared bike to buy a Specialized Langster as my first SS. I ended up somehow getting the Swobo and I think I made the right choice. I swapped out the awesome looking track bars for risers, but kept the tracks just in case... I a ... Read More »
