The Mini Velo
Our tokyobike Mini Velo embodies the true spirit of tokyobike, minimalistic and designed for enjoying each moment of your ride. Full sized bikes with super small wheels are very popular in Japan and are seldom found here in the US. The smaller wheel size makes the Mini Velo particularly responsive to each movement, and allows the rider to accelerate super quick, and stop on a dime. The full-size frame means you’re not sacrificing on fit, or style. The 20" wheels help the Mini Velo fit neatly into small spaces, in the corner of your living room, or right beside you on the train, it is perfect for urban living. Over longer distances (8+ miles) the Mini Velo may feel slightly slower than a bike with larger wheels, but over a shorter commute it is not noticeable, and so incredibly fun to ride! If you already have too many bikes in your collection, there’s always room for a Mini Velo! As we say, the Mini Velo is the most fun you can have on a bike. And as they say, good things come in small packages.
|Frame Size||Rider Height||Standover Height|
|S/M - 45cm||4' 11" - 5' 7" (150 - 170cm)||29" (72cm)|
|M/L - 55cm||5' 7" - 6' 3" (170 - 190cm)||31" (78cm)|
Please note some riders may be a little outside of these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller bike. Standover height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden.
