Do you know what the Dutch do best besides house music and kickboxing? Bicycles. And the Minute Cycle, a sophisticated little bike designed by Elian Veltman, a very talented and experienced mobility engineer from Elian Cycles is the proof of it. And also of the fact that size doesn’t matter, it`s all about style and performance.

Inspired by the small bicycles used in large asian urban areas, Elian created the Minute Cycle,  a bike that could be the ultimate urban bicycle. The Minute is anything but conventional and the first thing that stands out is the size of the wheels, smaller than the ones we commonly associate with regular bikes. The small wheels have not been chosen only for the funky design (although, let`s face it, they look insane), but for their functionality: a small wheel is stronger, lighter, more agile and at least as fast as a large wheel. In a quest to modernize urban cycling for today’s smoother, cleaner streets, without compromising on style, the agile tiny wheels were the perfect choice. And something you will really appreciate when you have to take your bike to your fourth-floor apartment.

In addition to its miniature wheels, the Minute originals are equipped with a built-in front rack, stainless steel fenders and a Brooks saddle. The bike is made of steel and the frame is a fraction smaller than a regular bike and a perfect balance of  strength and low weight.

So, if you`re looking for a strong, comfortable and durable solution for your city ride, the Minute bicycles are currently available for pre-order.
