I first noticed Urbana Bikes last August, after Kemptor launched the brand in Canada. They sent a review unit to me; I posted a First Look to Commute By Bike this morning.
Like I mention at CBB, I’ll be putting this bike through its paces, but I’ll mention already that this bike is a ton of fun to ride. Kemptor president Paul Harris tried several commuter bikes at Interbike a couple of years ago and didn’t care for the feel of many of them. He worked with designer Jerome Roy to create a bike that’s functional and fun. I think they succeeded.
I’ll talk more about this bike in the coming weeks over at CBB.
