The Blackline is inspired by and made for the Windy City. As Chicagoan, we know that the city goes from biker's paradise to brutally freezing rides over the winter. We wanted the ultimate Chicago bike to answer all needs of commuters through thoughtful features, but make them as invisible as possible, reducing the bike to its essence. With the team at MNML, we disrupted the common architecture into a rugged yet simple, badass bicycle ! 


The bike focuses on " on the go " features, integrated and quickly accessible to keep the ride smooth carry-on bags, light signals, GPS.... The wheels provide the right amount of durability and ruggedness to go from snow roads to smooth Lakeshore paths
