Fern Touring Bike

Fern is a small touring bicycle and component manufacturer based in Berlin - Germany. It was founded by two traveling cyclists / design graduates – Flo and Phillip – who after thousands of miles on the road together wanted to put their touring experience into making their own practical and beautiful bikes for fellow travelers. Fern was born out of friendship, a shared lust for adventure, and curiosity. Their signature bike is the "Chacha” named after a Georgian Mountain Schnapps. Available with 26" or 28" wheels, the bike is built to order and customized with components and accessories according to customer requirements. In short, the "Chacha” is the best you could wish for to make the most challenging cycling trips.

Note: bags pictured are by GRAMM, a new brand of bikepacking gear with some clever detailing, as well as minimal branding.
