Sson 028 Fixed Gear Bike

Swedish bike brand Sson has first made a name for itself with a very well designed beach cruiser a couple of years ago. Today they launch their new 028 fixed gear bike.

“We wanted to make a bicycle that is as generic & timeless as possible, using both modern and vintage design features for that custom made feeling. We chose a straight fork both out of aesthetic & functional reasons as it makes for a quicker sensation. In fact, all angles on the Sson 028 are true track bike angles. The frame is made using CroMo steel 4130 & all intersections on the frame are tig welded except one that is lugged. We also incorporated the timeless aesthetic of the bicycle by using a fashionable N.Y. style 41 cm cut off riser handlebar & connecting it to a drop stem & vintage looking threaded Tange headset. We also wanted to add a vintage feel to the saddle, so we put it toghether using brass rivets. The front wheel is laced radial style & the back wheel has a flip flop hub, which makes it possible to choose whether you want to ride fixed gear or single speed.”

The bike comes with a really great travel case as well and is now available exclusively through the C Store.
