Few vehicles are as perfectly designed for efficient locomotion as the bicycle. And while it only takes wheels and a frame to make a bike, a little attention to style and comfort can create a life-long passion for carbon-free transportation. No bike demonstrates this more eloquently than the Scout, which Linus calls “the bike for everyone” – read on to find out why!
Arthur Conan Doyle once said “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
The Scout is a bike for those who feel more natural sitting up straight rather than hunched over racing handlebars. No longer must we feel inferior because we’re not comfortable on a fixed-geared bike that’s liable to throw us over the handlebars if we stop pedaling.
The Scout features an easy step-through frame, an upright riding posture and 7 speeds that make it easy explore your world, even if there are lots of hills. And who cares if you don’t really know what they mean by a “Hi Tensile steel frame with Chromoly down tube” or “Tektro dual pivot caliper brakes”? All that bike nerd speak simply means that this unassuming bicycle is made with the highest quality components so, like Arthur Conan Doyle suggests, you can keep your mind on the joy of the ride rather than the ratio of your gears.
Do you feel yourself falling for the Scout? Good news – Linus is giving Inhabitat readers the chance to win their very own! All you have to do is share a photo with us that explains why you need this bike and why we should green your ride.
