Firefly Bicycles Ti Commuter

Firefly Bicycles Ti Commuter

I’ve been greatly enjoying Firefly Bicycles‘ morning #bostonam jaunts on Instagram. They truly capture the more informal side of these bikes that seem so mechanically correct in their usual studio setting. The titanium tubes, with perfectly formed beads around every conjunction, almost seem otherworldly in their construction, but they are most definitely put together by humans and are built for everyday riding, especially this belt-driven commuter.

Titanium, by its very nature, feels more of a contemporary frame material than steel, requiring an exact temperature and a pristine environment during its construction. Firefly’s Tyler Evans, Jamie Medeiros and Kevin Wolfson produce dazzling frames that prove their versatility, decorated with anodised highlights. Their latest commuter is no exception: powered by a Gates carbon belt drive, steered with a custom stem and bar and topped with a proprietary seat mast.

    Pretty cool, but I’m kinda bummed on the fact that it doesn’t have paragon drops or track ends with the carbon drive… not being able to change up the gearing at all would really bother me.

      Looking at the NDS crank at the bottom bracket in the last photo it seems as though it has an eccentric bottom bracket. It would only make sense. I’m certain Firefly didn’t overlook this.

        Ah. Yeah, I see it now.

    Stunning frame, dropouts in particular. Does anybody know what the mudguards are?

      They are Berthoud carbon fenders

    Firefly is one of my favorite builders. I love everything about this bike/frame except that really slack ST + the large amount of BB drop (the resulting angle of the CS) is just an eyesore to me for some reason

    Price?
