If you hail from Chicago, you know that there is nothing “second” about this city. And yes, you do get a little defensive about it. Maybe it’s not the first thing everybody brags about, but we are totally willing to boast wherever and whenever we can, so “home of the first woman to win the Nobel peace prize,” is a title we happily embrace. In an era when women were not even supposed to understand the consequences of voting, Jane Addams was traveling the world, constructing complex social-political theories, and founding Hull House, an exemplar of charity and social reform. All while being a classy, elegant, and well-loved lady. Which is exactly why we na med this swooping masterpiece of metalwork after the lovely and refined Ms. Addams. Jane gracefully bridges the gap between the ultra-intense, 365-days-a-year cyclists and those of us who want to ride even on days we’ve got our petticoats on.
The Jane frame is handcrafted with light, durable, American True-Temper chromoly-steel. On the standard model, you will find:
• 1-speed coaster hub
• Velo-Orange plush Saddle
• Natural Cork grips
• Hand-built, double-wall, alloy wheels
• Schwalbe Delta Cruiser tires with K-Guard®
