Developed in collaboration with minimalist design studio and acclaimed watch makers Instrmnt, our 2-Speed city bike incorporates the ethos of both brands, treating form and function with equal importance. 



A 2-speed Automatix gear and SRAM coaster brake were specified to make city riding easier and more enjoyable, while a stitched leather top tube protector was designed to guard the frame from chips and act as a carry grip for the hand or shoulder.

Bespoke-made and by Longside Leather, the top tube protector sits alongside matching handlebar grips and an iconic FG saddle, with each leather component designed to develop and patina over the lifetime of the bike. Each model was hand built by us in our South London workshop.
