Vivelo Custom BikesGET IT
Choosing that perfect bike for summertime can be a tall order. It should be a fun experience, but when you start to weigh one brand’s options against another’s—one company has the right color scheme you dig, but another brand has technical specs that align more with your needs—it can begin to feel taxing. So what’s more important to you? (Trick question… you don’t have to compromise on either end.)
We’d like to introduce you to Vivelo. They provide custom made-to-order bikes that are undoubtedly the finest bike we’ve had the pleasure of cruising on in quite some time. You can customize your bike from several frame and gear options, and then dial in eac the colors for each and every component of the bike—from the frame, cogs, gears shifters, spokes, tires, and even down to the tiny brand graphics and brake/gear cables. Seriously, you can make your bike into whatever you want, and then they deliver it almost entirely assembled, straight to your door.
If you’re particular about your cycling gear, then Vivelo is the ticket. We put together a ruggedly handsome Rider Boss bike with a gray and red color scheme, with Shimano Nexus 7-speed gears, and we couldn’t be more pleased with its performance on the road. Built from mostly aluminum parts, the bikes is lightweight and feels so solid on the pavement. They boast eco-leather covers on both the saddle and the grips, as well as front/rear LED lights for peace-of-mind while cruising after sundown.
In a world where many people are turning to the e-bike, we still feel like traditional human-powered bikes still have a very prominent place in our life. And the bike we’ve ridden from Vivelo exceeded our expectations when it comes to rideability and comfort (their saddles are extraordinarily comfortable), not to mention head-turning aesthetic features. We think it’s time to rethink the traditional bicycle, and Vivelo makes that a very simple and easy choice.—Jon Perino, senior editor
