Hanko Commuter 8-Speed

Item: HAN52-A8D-MGR-N

Finland shares a lot in common with the North American northeast: icy cold winters, lots of snow cover, and salt to keep streets clear. But, at the same time, Finland and Canada are full of dense cities with a population that loves to live outdoors. That produces a different sensibility that drives Pelago design: lightweight bikes for longer rides (or hills), strong finishes for weather protection, and comfortable upright frames that take comfort and safety seriously. 

The Pelago Hanko Commuter 8-Speed is a Finnish city bike with classic beauty and four-season practicality that lets you zoom through city streets no matter what they throw at you. The 8-speed Alfine hub has a wide gear range that can tackle distance or hills, and it's internally sealed for four-season riding or storage. The Hanko’s powerful hydraulic disc brakes hold up in all weather conditions to deliver year-round reliable braking. A slightly low-rise stem paired with city-friendly swept back handlebars mean you can see everything coming your way, without having to compromise an efficient riding position. Best of all, the Hanko comes equipped with a high-end dynamo light set. Powered by electricity produced from the lightweight front hub, the dynamo light is super-bright for those long nordic nights, and best of all: bolted to the bike so firmly that it makes thieves think twice. 

What's more? The Hanko Commuter has classically stylish fenders to keep you dry in shoulder-season rainstorms. Sturdy double-walled rims support Schwalbe Spicer tires with internal puncture-proof protection, perfect for riding over glass and urban debris. The frame has welded braze-ons to allow for bottle cage mounting - a feature most city bikes overlook that makes this bike great for longer rides.

In addition to its enormous practicality, the Hanko is stylish in a vintage classic way. A full-grain Brooks B17 leather saddle adds a touch of sophistication and tons of comfort once broken in and perfectly accents the heritage frame colour. Add a rear rack and basket of your choice to make the Hanko a constant companion on your adventures in the city and out on the rail trails.
