| Introducing The
Nano - uncompromised quality of Mercier comes to
a super compact yet ultra-versatile bicycle. This bike is unique it's almost custom. So unique and custom, it is not on the Mercier website - yet.
Yokota Fritz says:
"Minivelo" bicycles are bicycles with small, 20" wheels but with road or city / hybrid bike design influences rather than the BMX bike look. Though at a glance these compact bicycles look like they might be folders, they're not typically folding bicycles. Because the small size lends to easier storage, minivelo bikes are hugely popular in some Asian countries, Japan, Korea and Taiwan in particular. They have a following in Europe and the UK, also.
These lightweight bicycles "feel" a lot like a normal bike. Unlike many comparably equipped folding bikes, they tend to be reasonably stiff and responsive. Many people carry minivelo bicycles onto light rail and train systems as part of a multimodal commute."
Who should buy this bike - Anyone who wants a convenient, agile bicycle. Great for commuting in tighter areas. More compact than normal sized bicycles.
What does this compare to- Compare this bike to other Mini Velos like Soma, Gios or Masi mini velo bikes which sell for $900+ with similar specs.
