New! Fleetvelo Joust 135
At the 2010 InterBike show in Vegas, we unleashed the new Joust 135mm HS Coup. This custom bike was built complete with S & S couplers for travel and ISCG tabs for using a Hammerschmidt 2 spd crank that will be available options. The fork also featured a 135mm spaced proto fork with V-Brake Tabs. This new frame can also take a 26 x 2.1 nobby tire with a true wheel, we still suggest between a 1.5-1.95 slick for better performance, how ever in Chicago we've seen some nobbies for grass polo.

-Spacing: 100 front, 135mm rear
-Joust Geometry (featured on www.fleetvelo.com) quick and comfortable like a sofa on wheels
