With the anticipated launch of http:// www.puma-bikes.com, Puma and Biomega introduce their newest generation of urban bikes. (CH has covered previous models produced in the collaboration.) Distilling the practical components of continental city and folding bikes, fixed gears, BMXs and cruisers, the 2010 range is a hybrid of European design and American style.
Included in the range are five base models—Disko, Funk, Nevis Man, Nevis Lady and Pico—over 120 configurations in all considering the color choices, extras and other options. The Disko stands out with its unique anti-theft feature, a locking system built into the frame. The Funk lets riders change from a single gear to a fixed gear. The Nevis accommodates the laid-back position of a cruiser, sporting a convenient front carrier. The Pico is referential to the BMX, outfitted with a Shimano Acera eight-speed gear set and front carrier.
The 2010 Puma Bikes will be offered through the website starting 19 June 2010 in the United States and Europe. Customers can choose home delivery or have their customized bike shipped to a nearby dealer for pick up .
