Mokumono Bike

Amsterdam is the cycling capital of Europe, so there is no surprise some very cool bicycles are being created in the Netherlands. Inspired by the automotive industry and its innovating and automating of production processes, Mokumono decided to try and reinvent the way a bike frame is produced, using robots just like in the automotive manufacture. Instead of the traditional tubes, the main part of the frame is made from two sheets of 7000-grade aluminum. To allow for a comfortable ride, they designed the frame with floating rear stays and added a carbon fiber front fork, making sure that the strong and lightweight frame offers a smooth ride. Mokumono only use the best components available, the bike features a Gates Carbon Belt Drive System, Shimano 105 grade hydraulic flat mount disk brakes, a Brooks Cambium C15 saddle, a Shimano Alfine 8-speed or 11-speed hub, wheels and saddle protected from thieves with an anti-theft screw, and internal cable routing to hide them from view but more importantly from the environment.
