What people are saying
70km P2A Racer, Niagara, Ontario
"My first date with the Urban Scout (SS belt) has me planning for longer rides. The geometry is bang-on, so setting up fit was a delight, to the point that I see running drops or flats working great. The Medium sizing was perfect, I often ride a 54 with drops. It felt like I could race Cross, while having the vibration dampening I love in the rear triangle; no noticeable flex for chain stays close to 46cm. Meticulous craftmanship that pairs well with creative component solutions, hoping Chris & Jessica will help me pair it up with my Rohloff and Gates system."
"When I first encountered the Urban Scout, my brain immediately sized up the model and computed two things – beautiful, yet heavy. But when I went to pick the bike up, I was astounded at how light it was. [...] While these bikes might look stunning, they are actually much more impressive when they hit the road. It’s like being one with a bike. [...] I just wanted to keep riding!"
