2010 Bike Preview: TransIt Franklin

New year – new brand.

Our new for 2010 TransIt line of commuter bikes was designed to be both functional and fashionable – five models for trekking or running errands around traffic-laden city streets.  Named after streets right here in our hometown of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the TransIt line will feature practical components in a stylish package.

The flagship model of the TransIt line is named after the main street that runs right through the heart of Chapel Hill.  Here’s Chris Danz, one of our bike distributors, with a video introduction of the TransIt Franklin (from right in front of the venerable Varsity Theatre):

For a closeup look, here are a few shots of the TransIt Franklin in our warehouse:

Previews of the remaining TransIt lineup will be posted right here on the Performance Bicycle Blog, and the TransIt Franklin will be available at Performance Bicycle soon.

2010 Bike Preview: Scattante Americano Courier Series Single Speeds

This year’s Scattante Courier Series sold out in no time.  2010 Couriers will adopt the Americano model name and break new ground with graphics, parts packages, and color matching.  These bikes look just as good in person and will be the perfect ride to head down the hipster silk route… or just for a pit stop at your local library (but be sure to lock it up when you go inside).  You can expect to see these new models around February, so until then you’ll just have to make do with more pretty pictures:
