Yesterday we featured a new bike line from the original designer and founder of Electra Bikes, and today we’re featuring another – it’s one of two that we have in stock from Benno Bikes.
This model is called the Balloon 8, and as the name implies it has fairly large 26″ x 2.35″ tires. Although the tires might imply a super-laid back design the frame geometry is actually pretty standard, meaning it’s reasonably nimble and agile.
Also as the name indicates, the bike has an 8 speed drivetrain. Other than that it’s a fairly basic affair with steel frame and fork, v-style rim brakes, and a moderately high, slightly swept back handlebar.
The MRSP on this bike is $1000 but we’re selling it now for just $700 plus taxes. This is the only one we have in stock at the time of this posting so if you’re interested be sure to act fast.
