Pilen Lyx

Thu, 2011-05-19 11:32 -- admin

Pilen Lyx is built with love and sound engineering skills to run easily on forest trails as well as on tarmac

The Lyx presents an extraordinarily comfortable ride that you simply have to experience. Low-maintenance hub gears and brakes are complemented by a handlebar shift, back-pedal coaster rear brake with a hand operated option and a super-comfortable Brooks leather saddle. The bicycle is supplied with a substantial load-bearing rear carrier with hand painted Pilen logo. It has powder coated steel mudguards and chain guard, front dynamo and rear LED lights, a frame-fitted rear wheel immobiliser lock and a special Pilen bell.

It comes with single, 2, 3, 5, 7 or 8 gears. With extra strong spokes, double skin rims and a strong carrier they can easily take heavy luggage.

It is much work to administer and change the photographs of the bikes over time and across models. We will try something new, to use a file sharing service called Dropbox that many already uses to store and share photographs and files. First and foremost this is a change in order to make it easier for you to find photos and see how Pilen bikes looks. And often our retailers want photos to their websites or advertising and we hope that this will be a step forward. In a Dropbox album, you can download individual photos or the entire album as a compressed zip-file (show example picture with download button). Downloaded files are 2048px wide and can be viewed without Internet. All the buttons above will open in a new window.
