Inspired by French bicycle design of the 50s and 60s Linus have created a bicycle that preserves the simple elegance and pure form of that golden era, but has all the benefits of modern comfort and reliability. Linus is the utilitarian city bike… simple and reliable, but with a personality and style that makes you feel like you’re in an old French movie. Linus see bicycles not only for recreation and sport, but as a legitimate form of transportation. In our every day life we take numerous little journeys, under 5 miles.. to the store, the cafe, to work, etc. Besides the obvious joy of riding a bicycle, these small trips reduce carbon emissions, congestion, noise pollution, and make for a happier, more connected city experience.
