Product information

Jitensha bicycle frames and forks are made of high quality alloyed steel called “Double Butted Chromoly Steel”. Its better known as “Cr-Mo 4130”. Double butted means the tube thickness varies: Thicker at the main frame joints to increase strength and thinner on other sections to decrease weight where possible. The result is a great balance of light weight and durability.

All other parts are made of Aluminium Alloy 6061 (i.e Crankset, handle bars, seat tubes, …), Aluminium (wheel rims, pedals, …) and Microfiber (i.e saddles and bar tapes…).

To make our bike versatile and light weight for daily urban use, we are convinced the Cr-Mo 4130 specs are ideal. Carbon and Aluminium would be lighter, but a lot more fragile.

A single speed is a classic bike with only one speed, 2 breaks and a freewheel in the back. Our crank/sprocket ratio, 48T x 18T makes it a very versatile bike: you can go real fast, re-start easily when stopping at a light and go up-hill as well by pressing a bit harder on your legs.

We now offer 2-speed bikes as well as e-bikes. Discover here.

We know you wonder and are a bit anxious about this… Actually, why do you think people who ride the most in cities (messengers) use fixie or single speed bikes?

At Jitensha, we’ve discovered single speed recently and we simply love the riding experience. The freedom and ease of use of a single speed. It’s a totally different experience and once you have tried, its hard to go back to another bicycle.
They are awesome to ride, they are fast, they require no maintenance, and they are all about you, your legs, the city and your bike. Give it a try and you won’t regret.
– Ergonomic design and light weight (<10kg – a Velib weights 22kg) => speed and control,
– One speed => no maintenance, no skipping gears, no weird noises | 100% pleasure!
– You have 100% control on your ride!

Just focus on enjoying your ride without any technical hassle!

The key differences is you have a freewheel (in the back) and 2 breaks, so its like any other bike you have ridden before. You’ll be comfortable and feel good from the moment you get on it.

Of course, you can! We ride in Tokyo, Paris, New York, Geneva… ! Our crank/sprocket ratio, 48T x 18T makes it a very versatile bike. You’ll learn quickly how to optimize your routes and arrive at good speed at the bottom of a hill.

You’ll feel well from the moment you jump on it! And the more you ride it, the more you’ll love it. It’ll then be hard to go back to a bike with speeds.

The size of your frame is important to ensure a great riding experience. Yet, we understand most of us don’t know much about bicycle sizing. Please use the below chart to choose the right size. You will also find this on the shop pages when you order your JITENSHA.

Many adjustments can be made to ensure the perfect fit once you receive your bicycle: stem height, saddle height and position / distance to handle bar… We are always at your to help advise if you wish.
