Swobo Otis (Women's) Hybrid Bike

DESCRIPTION

Swobo Otis
We designed the Otis around the SRAM 3-speed coaster brake hub after we rode that hub for the first time. We were that fired up. There are few bikes more simple, obvious, practical and versatile than an urban/suburban/bourbon 3-speed with twist shifter.

The frame and fork are based on the tough, oversize round and box section shapes of the Folsom, but with bosses for water bottles, rear racks and rear fenders. Geometry is slightly less laid-back. A front mechanical disc brake will stop you in any type of weather, in conjunction with the precision SRAM German coaster brake in the rear. The fast, puncture-resistant street tires have a siped tread pattern to shed water.

Internal geared hubs have the benefit of almost zero maintenance or vulnerability to damage, unlike a bike with derailleurs. You can drop the bike on the right side, where the derailleur isn’t, and not damage the shifting mechanism. Impervious to the elements and intuitive to operate, the three speeds can tackle everything.

Swobo component details include the custom fork, saddle, grips, seat collars and handlebar end caps.
