Customise a GT and get a GT Special

A good bike is something you should enjoy, feel proud of and have a good relationship with – aesthetically, technically and economically. That’s why Pilen embraces the customers’ creativity. It makes sense for everyone involved. The customer gets his personal Pilen to enjoy and Pilen gets to sell more beautiful Pilen bikes.

GT Special is a GT where you have selected paint job and parts to your own liking. Single colour bicycles with white or brown tyres are popular. You kan choose:

  • Single coloured bike or a custom composition with fenders in any standard Pilen colour.
  • Red power painted rims.
  • Brown or Creme tyres.
  • Saddle Brooks B17 Special or saddle in faux leather.
  • Exclusive bells from Japanese Crane Bells.
  • A selection of baskets and carriers.

You must order a GT Special though your Pilen retailer. Some delivery time might apply.

Why ride a Pilen?

The first and foremost argument is no doubt that you get a lot of bike for the buck. The Pilen only has but a few employees, and everyone in the company is able to build a bicycle with quality in the smallest detail. The bicycles are built at a lean production line that the Pilen folks built entirely on their own – a line that is subject to constant improvement.

You can choose the equipment level on all models. If you want a bike with just the bare necessities or spend a little extra, you have the chance to compose your own personal bike. Compare the Pilen’s driving experience and the equipment level with other bicycle brands. The bike feels neater and more lively.

  • More delightful details

  • What makes a Pilen a rare and beautiful breed?
    1. Frame tubes in chrome-molybdenum steel grade 4130. A more expensive steel grade. The frame becomes stronger and more flexible with better driving experience. Take it for a spin and feel the difference. The frame is welded with TIG welding, a slow and advanced welding technique that produces strong thin joints. The frame details are brazed. True craftsmanship is beautiful and gives the best driving experience.
    2. The frame's top tube and down tube are butted. That means the tubing is thinner at the middle to save weight 0.9–0.6–0,9 mm.
    3. Elegant fork with cast steel crown. Fork legs in chrome molybdenum steel 4130. Fork legs are brazed to the cast fork. Very precise and responsive.
    4. Very strong wheels with double bottomed alloy rims, targeted spoke holes, eyelets and strong spokes in stainless steel. Rear wheel got butted spokes for extra strength.
    5. Maintenance-free bottom bracket from Tange model LN-7922 with forged steel solid spindle, quality shielded bearings and light alloy body cups. Just lovely feeling and spin.
    6. Stainless steel 18.8 mudguards, struts, carrier clamps and all nuts and bolts. Alloy seat post and stem.
    7. Elegant carrier in alloy.
    8. Genuine Brooks leather saddle in Black, Brown or Honey. Synthetic leather saddle as an option.
