CITY SLAYER There is simply no better material better suited for the rigors of urban riding than steel. Unlike aluminum, steel naturally damps or absorbs the shocks and vibrations of city streets. Aluminum simply transmits it, like a tuning fork, which is why aluminum frames are often criticized for their "harsh" riding qualities. Besides, on a fixie, where vintage reigns, skinny steel frame tubes are just right.
The Beatnik is a stripped-down, go fast bike for the urban jungle. It features a steel frame to soak up anything the city has to throw at you, along with brakes and a flip-flop hub just in case. Everything you need to survive on pedals on the street. Nothing more. Nothing less.
