NEW Swobo bikes in stock!
The style and simplicity of the track bike, Sanchez, and created the Del Norte. 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. Flat bars are an option, if you prefer.
The one-speed, coaster-brake, knock-around Folsom begs to be ridden with one hand on the bars and the other around a box of cans. With no brake levers to grab, you will always have one hand free for waving, not drowning. Remember the thrill of laying down a huge skidding fish-tail? This bike will make you laugh.
