Neutrino Mini-Velo Frames Arrive!

The long-awaited Neutrino Framesets have arrived and are ready to ship out! We've pre-sold a lot of frames. More than we thought we would, so pickin's on the remaining quantities are slim.

We've already sent out emails to our amazing pre-order customers confirming shipping addresses, so if you have not responded, please check your inbox for our email or send us a new email so we can get your new frameset out to you.

If this is the first time you're hearing about this cool Mini-Velo, here's the scoop: the Neutrino is designed to be your next practical, fun, and stylish friend. It is designed around 20" (406 bsd) wheels, sliding dropouts, rack and fender mounts, and neutral handling.

For city and apartment dwellers, you'll get great acceleration for stoplight racing as the wheels spin up quite fast. When you've reached your destination, getting the bike into the building, walking up stairs, and parking it in your apartment is so much easier because the physical length of the bike is greatly reduced. You can much more nimbly negotiate stairwells and since it's warm and cozy inside, you don't have to worry about it getting ripped off overnight.

For multi-modal traveling, it's easier to take the bike in a train car without taking up a ton of room and attracting disdainful looks from fellow commuters. Oh and Rinko. Forget cutting fenders, removing handlebars, and wheels. Just loosen the stem, turn the handlebars 90 degrees, and put the whole thing into a Rinko bag!

Whether you're a frequent traveler, apartment dweller, multi-modal commuter, or just enjoy a fun N+1 bike, the Neutrino Mini-Velo will fit perfectly into your heart.

Our friends over at Bok Bok Bike in Thailand have made quick work of doing a couple amazing builds: one based around a Rolhoff Speedhub and another with a Shimano Alfine 11 with bikepacking gear - check it out!
