We designed our mixte urban commuter bike for you. From hand-selecting top of the range components to rigorous testing giving you the best riding experience possible. Our bikes are just perfect for everyday commuting as well as casual riding. Featuring puncture-resistant tyres, an elegant hi-ten lugged steel frame, chain guard and full fenders. Dual-pivot brakes with quick release, 3-speed Shimano Nexus internal gear, PU leather saddle and handgrips, sprung carrier and built in front and rear LED lights. We also went the extra mile to add alloy components where possible so you can ride rain, hail or shine. Bottom line is our bikes are built for living, riding, and thriving.
ATALANTA LADIES CLUB
Did you know that the first women cycling club in Australisia was the Atalanta Cycle Club which started in Christchurch in 1892. Members included suffragette Kate Shepherd and dress reformer Alice Burnand. The women attracted hostility when they wore ‘bloomers’ or knickerbockers on their outings with people often shouting abuse and sometimes throwing stones.
ABC’s commuter bicycles are highly functional as they are beautiful. Using the modern materials while retaining a vintage look and feel. Designed locally in Christchurch, New Zealand.
