Torker introduced the Interurban 24, a new, low cost hybrid road bicycle for children at Sea Otter Classic 2011 in Monterey.
Interurban 24 is meant to be a miniaturized version of Torker’s Interuban road bike for adults. The $569 adult Interurban is a CroMo steel 16 speed drop bar road-style bicycle designed for city commuter use. Torker created the Interurban 24 so the child can come along on rides with a matching bike.
Torker started with the alloy Conquest 24 CX frame from their sister brand at Redline, replaced the ERTO 520 tires with the more available and less expensive ERTO 540 tire size. Moving from drop bars to flat bars also takes substantially from the cost. The result is a good child size city bicycle for well under $400 retail. You can even mount fenders or racks to this bike.
