Whoa! This a pretty rad low cost ripper. And by low cost I mean sub $600. If I was in the market for my first geared bicycle OR needed something to ride/rip/lock and not sweat everytime it’s out of sight for more than a few seconds… this would easily be my pick.
“Our Amok-9 cyclocross commuter fuses sophistication with unrivaled power. Cyclocross by design, our Amok-9 is better classified as an urban warrior. It triumphs the track and it owns the streets. Its 4130 chromoly frame is hand-built, tig-welded, and double-butted for confident and quick riding. It’s more lightweight than a mountain bike and more durable than a city bike. Our relaxed geometry gives a comfortable ride over and over again even when you’re traveling for many miles at a time. We’ve welded the cable on top of the top tube, so it’ll never catch on you or your clothing when it’s time to lift your bike up, whether it be to climb over some logs or up some stairs.” – Retrospec
