"A big-city bicycle designed to fit in small places. People call this bicycle a BMX bike on steroids. " — Paul Budnitz, Founder, Budnitz Bicycles
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
Premium bicycle brand Budnitz Bicycles launched their new Model No.4 city bicycle today. The cutting-edge, compact stainless steel and titanium bicycle was specially created for big-city living.
“This is a bicycle that was created to fit in small spaces and for maneuvering busy city streets. You can ride No.4 right into an elevator. It fits in trunks of cabs, small apartments, and under airplanes and is a complete blast to ride,” says creator Paul Budnitz.
Stunningly beautiful, with clean lines and minimal logos that recall vintage motorcycles, Budnitz Model No.4 is available in brushed stainless steel or black gloss. All models feature many handmade titanium parts, titanium badges, and Budnitz' unique trademark split-tube Cantilever Frame, optimized to absorb road shock and provide a quick, responsive ride. No.4 also features silent Gates Carbon belts instead of a chain and space-efficient 24-inch tires.
Besides its space-efficient size, Model No.4 is also just a lot of fun to ride.
“I wanted to build small bike to travel with and to keep in my New York City apartment. I was inspired by BMX bikes and vintage Aston-Martins. What I created was a gorgeous little bike that is also just so much fun to ride ride. This bicycle turns heads and makes you feel like a kid again,” says Budnitz.
Budnitz Model No.4 features world-class components by small manufacturers adapted from top-end racing bikes. Base price is $2800.
“This bicycle continues our commitment to produce the fastest, lightest, and most beautiful bicycles in the world. We believe that building beautiful things that are made to last transforms the world we live in,” says Budnitz.
No.4 is the fourth model in Budnitz Bicycles' unique line-up of unique high-end urban titanium and stainless steel bicycles. It follows on the heels of full-sized titanium models No.1, No.2, and No.3. The Budnitz Bicycles web store also features handmade titanium parts, apparel, and signed bicycle artwork by world-renowned illustrators and artists.
