Torker Graduate: set playlist to smooth

A full triangle indicates high and an empty one indicates low. We had to pedal hard, but 5 speeds were just enough to get us up the steepest Seattle hills and that’s how this bike is built. It’s got just enough of what you need for a commuter with little maintenance.

Drum brakes, internal Sturmey Archer hub, chain guard, fenders and you could retire with this bike or hand it down to the next generation. All you’ll need to replace is the chain and tires.

The comfortable steel frame and big tires rolled over the roughest road and we had fun riding it. If this bike shipped with a playlist it’d shuffle between Los Amigos Invisibles, Morphine, and Big Pun. A strong backbeat, thick bass, meaninful lyrics, and purpose. Don’t get this bike if you’re in a hurry. Just enjoy the ride and know it’ll get you where you’re going.

The Torker Graduate is available from youir local bike ship and MRSP is $499.00. We suggest you add lights and mud flaps. Maybe next year they’ll udpate it with colors that range beyond “battleship.”
