No, this isn’t New York’s Citi Bike. A winner at the 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the City Bicycle is the latest model from Cherubim, a classic brand founded in 1965. Their bikes are known for quality and for being the choice ride of Japan’s team in the 1968 Olympics. Fit for the near-Olympian feat of driving in a city, Cherubim’s newest design is set on a sculptural frame and boasts a built-in rack, Parigi-Roubaix rims, a colt saddle, and slopey handlebars, all in a mix of cool colors and neutral tones.
