Nirve Bicycles recently introduced a new bike in their line up called the Night Owl. It’s basically a beach cruiser frame with a BMX handle bars and some knobby tires…kinda reminds me of the Klunkerz bikes that mountain biking was bred from.
I think the Night Owl would be a good contender to go against some of the rigid single speed mountain bikes out there. You get V-brakes, a sturdy frame and a kickstand!
Here’s the Specs:
# Nirve proprietary Galaxieâ„¢ Alloy frameSingle speed
# Linear Pull Brakes
# Nirve Classic double spring saddle
# Quick-Adjust seat clamp
# Aluminum wheels w/stainless steel spokes
# Alloy crank
# Nirve grips in soft Kraton rubber
# Nirve 26â€? Enduro tread tires
# Welded Cartridge Kickstand
We’re actually going to test this baby out for both uses, bike commuting and for single speed mountain biking next month. I’m really excited about it because you get the best of both worlds with this bike.
