The Fahrradmanufaktur T-100 Step-Through is the European answer to making bicycles (Fahrradmanufaktur literally means "bike maker") that aren't just designed for small flat cities like Amsterdam or Copenhagen, but large sprawled out cities like Berlin, where cycling is transportation but also a pastime - and the weather is as lousy. Kind of like Toronto!

If your city riding is largely within a dense, highly defined radius the T-100 is a lightweight alternative to heavier Dutch bikes. If you have any hills in your usual route, the T-100 is lightweight and geared for the job. If you ride longer distances, or want to use the same bike in the city as you would on the weekend, the T-100 may be the only bike that does both equally well. It is, in fact, the ultimate do-everything "everyday" bike.

Like most of the German products we sell, the T-100 is a marvel of thoughtful design, engineering and top notch quality. The T-100 includes a dynamo lighting system that turns on automatically when you pedal, and even has a capacitor to keep the lights burning on stored energy when stopped. The parts are a collection of top-notch European companies, from the puncture resistant Schwalbe Tires to the Swiss made Pletscher kickstand. Everything is designed to work, and work well.

Unlike Dutch bikes which assume a consistently short ride in their design, the T-100 is upright but does position the rider ever so slightly over the bars to get more efficiency and control over distance. Just a touch more steering control and power to the pedals. It's not bolt-upright, but then, this is a bike you could ride for several hours if the spirit moves you. The cromoly steel frame is lighter and much more compliant than heavier steel frames from Holland, meaning you can finish a short bumpy ride or long gravel ride in comfort. It's stronger too. Like all the city bikes we sell, the Fahrradmanufaktur is built for perpetual outdoor storage but it's still light enough to carry inside.

    FAHRRADMANUFAKTUR COMPANY HISTORY: Fahrradmanufaktur (literally: bike manufacturer) builds strong, lightweight steel and aluminum bikes that are made for the sprawl of Berlin and the hills of North America. Fahrradmanufaktur originated with a group of Berlin retailers who were witnessing a boom in city cycling. They knew that heavy Dutch bikes couldn't provide solutions for big cities with sprawl and hilly topography. Frustrated with the sporting focus on the German bike industry, they first set up standards and approvals for a "no-nonsense" city bike, which ultimately led them to creating their own. Today Fahrradmanufaktur makes city bikes and touring bikes that are designed for life on two wheels. Fahrradmanufaktur is the evolution of the city bike, and we're pleased to be North America's first Fahrradmanufaktur retailer..
