Exclusive Classic Vintage Steel Touring Bicycle
Pilen GTV features front and rear Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and 11 derailleur or 11 hubbed gears. The new GTV frame is built with double-butted tubing in chrome-moly steel and heat-treated after welding for added strength and resilience. The GTV has rear vertical dropouts (hence its name GTV: Grand Tourer Vertical) which is required for disc brakes. The frame fittings and mounts for derailleur, bottle and wiring are brazed. The strong Pilen wheels are built with extra strong stainless spokes, stainless eyelets, double walled rims and Schwalbe Marathon Racer.
Shimano Alfine 11 is a high-grade hub built for finesse, versatility, and effortless operation with 11 smooth shifting gears. The hub shields the geared interior from the environment for low maintenance and carefree use. Fitted with Shimano M615 disc brake.
Pilen GTV with Shimano SLX 10 features a 11 gear cassette sprocket with a wide range of gearings and a smoothly working SLX derailleur shifter. External gears requires some basic periodic maintenance to keep it working perfectly.

A good bike should make enjoy every ride, feel proud of and have a good relationship with – aesthetically, technically and economically. That’s why Pilen embraces the customers’ creativity. The customer gets his personal Pilen to enjoy and Pilen gets to sell more beautiful Pilen bikes.
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.
