Local Motion

This came in today-

A shiny new SRAM I-Motion 9 internal hub. It’s got 9 internal, beautifully maintenance free speeds- and looks good, doncha think? It’s a high performance internal disc-ready hub.

What am I doing with it?

It’s for a project bike- the Siren Muse, a wedding present town bike we’re building for Kate.

Some of the features- Upright, comfortable & traffic-ready position, twin top tube morphing into an integrated rack system design… longish wheelbase, but not so long as a truck bike… integrated mirrors, and lots of hawt little details like wool tweed saddle bags, perhaps sewn by the capable hands of Jeff at Carousel Design Works.

Katie’s Muse will be designed around the I-ride fork, the i-motion 9 hub, and a healthy dose of bike jewelry. Prepare to want it.
