Coast Cycles Ruckus, An Adult Bicycle Inspired By 70s-Era Kids’ Mini-Bikes
Coast Cycles, a homegrown lifestyle bicycle brand from Singapore is making a quiet revolution in bringing well-designed urban bicycles that are perfect companions for its riders, and are compatible to the environment and the community.
The bikes designed by Coast Cycles manage to stand out – not because they are necessarily groundbreaking in technology, but because every bike they brought had great design and looked like it would be a ton of fun to ride.
Some bikes, like the Ruckus are really meant for nothing but fun. Inspired by American mini-bikes for kids from the 1970s, the Ruckus Bike is a modern version for adults in bicycle form. As such, the focus is on fun more than any express purpose, making for an all-around city ride that looks custom built for goofing around.
A bike built for city roads and literally described as a “Fun Bike”, the Coast Cycles Ruckus combines massive 20×4.25″ tires with a unique frame and one-piece fork/ handle bars. The long saddle can carry two people and the frame is compatible with many additions including racks, lights, trailers, or even an electric motor that can be bolted to the frame. Like most of the Coast bikes, the Ruckus is available in multiple drivetrain options and starts at $698 for the single speed build.
