Cycles Toussaint

The Citie is a Velo Routier equipped for city riding with upright swept back handlebars. At slow speeds this bike is very stable and at high speeds it is very nimble. Without a load, the steering feels very light at low speeds (below 20 km/hr/13 mph), this sensation disappears at higher speeds where it does not fall into a turn but will go exactly where the rider directs it. 

Designed with classic French low trail geometry to fit 32-to-42mm wide 650B tires with fenders, braze-ons for a front handlebar bag rack, low rider panniers and a rear rack for light touring. Two bottle water mount mounts and frame pump pegs on the seat stays. The frame is full 4130 Cro-mo throughout TIG welded with a main triangle of double butted tubing and stays. The fork is Cro-mo with a wide clearance cast crown that fit up to 2.1 inch wide Pacenti Neo-Moto MTB tires. 

The Citie is equipped with a 1X10 or 2X10 speed Micro-shift polished alloy MicroShift drive train. Super compact 46T or 36T  Luxe crank polished to mirror-like finish and proportional lengths of 165mm. 170mm or 175mm. Dia-Compe 750 long travel centre pull brakes are fixed to braze-on posts for a well modulated braking action. All topped by stainless steel rail Gyes all-leather saddle. 

We fully equipped it to ride in all conditions. Hammered, aluminium fender mounted with double darumas and leather washers.  No crummy heavy tires or cheap thick inner tubes; super supple and plush Pacenti 650B tires and Kenda inner tubes for lively and smooth ride at 40 psi. We've even included a stem-mounted aluminum bell. 

Each Citie comes partially assembled by or full assembled one of our dealers.
