Every component on the brilliant l-train as meticulously chosen based on the rigors of new York city commuters. This started with a new lightweight frame, making the bicycle easier to carry through walk-ups. The frame is built from double butted chromoly steel; thicker at the welds, thinner everywhere else. The bicycle also features seven gears, offering riders more than enough flexibility to get across the williamsburg bridge with ease and to conquer anything the city (even San Francisco) can throw at them. Making it unmistakably new York, the brilliant L train is OFFERED in a signature subway Grey color that pays homage to the iconic L train subway Logo and hudson River blue, inspired by the water views on the other side of the island, for riders looking for a POP of color. Along with these big Apple commute-inspired features, the brilliant L train is built with a low-maintenance, grease-free gates carbon belt drive that can go thousands of miles without a tune-up. That means no more chains and no more grease on your clothes. The bicycle also comes with a top-of-the-line FSA threaded headset and Shimano V brakes for superior stopping power; every feature of the brilliant L train is made from high-end, trusted components.The new reliable and low maintenance way to get from brooklyn to manhattan, or wherever life is taking you.
