31 Jul Porter 2

Based on the Porteur transport bikes of old, the Porter takes its design cues from the artisanship of today’s handmade bicycle scene. These clean, cool and upright-riding bikes are packed with useful features allowing those who commute regularly, to carry large loads with ease. Their light alloy frames and parts make them as enjoyable to ride, as they are practical and stylish.
