Velorbis of Denmark makes these beautiful town bikes for commuting to work. Electra has tried to copy them but, I'm sorry Electra tries a bit too hard to be cool. Doesn't work. These reak beauty. Very well designed with nothing but the best components. I wish they were imported into North America. They have a corporate line as well for signature business models. Very smart. One more thing North America just doesn' get. We seem to think a Hummer with a logo has more impact than a beautiful low speed carbon neutral billboard. I won't even get started on the riders of the bikes. Ah.....Europe.
