Swobo expands their line with the Del Norte

by Commute by Bike

Last spring Swobo made big waves when they released their line of minimalistic bikes built for everyday urban use. Focusing on internal hubs, slick looks and well thought out designs, these bikes are great additions to the commuter world of bikes.

Here at Interbike they’ve released several new models including the Del Norte. This steel frame/fork combination is built from the ground up with tire clearance in mind. There’s plenty of room to switch out your skinny tires for bury ones if your commute calls for it. The hub is a 130mm flip flop so you can run both singlespeed or fixed gear and the tires are 700c puncture-resistant with 3M reflective strips.

So that’s all the boring specs on the Del Norte… from there the bike is amazingly hot. The chain, rims and hubs are all a bright red which contrasts nicely with the light grey frame and steel track bars.

I’m not sure what the MSRP will be, but this is the best looking bike I’ve seen at the show so far. here’s the pics…

    Hello chrome handlebar tape! That is truly a gorgeous ride!

    That bar tape would go quite nicely with my chrome WTB Rocket V saddle…superbad!
