KP Cykler is building a better bike with built-in theft deterrent

To enhance the aesthetics of their bikes, Kaspar Peek, the founder of KP Cykler designed removable cable clamps for those who want to ride fixed gear. The look and feel of the bicycle is nicely put by multible World Champion and Olympic silver medallist Alex Rasmussen: “I like that it’s so simple and just really beautifully made. It’s the kind of a bike you want to ride.” To purchase a KP Cykler bicycle and find out more, visit their Kickstarter project
