This city bicycle was built to accommodate 650B x 42mm tires and fenders. A rear handmade Mariposa carrier is integrated into the frame design and it has hub generated dynamo lighting that is wired through the frame and fenders, so that the lights are powered as you ride. With an additional adaptor, any USB device can be charged while you ride. A vintage Silca frame pump was painted to match.
