Mach1's expertise in this field
Stability, manoeuvrability and durability are the hallmarks of urban bicycles; hence the solid 26" or 28" wheels, which are rather light and suitable for the widespread use of skid brakes. Generally wide enough to give good grip in all weathers, urban bike tyres are mounted on rims with a low profile and an internal dimension of 19 to 21, or even 23 mm; except for the fixie where a narrow, high profile is required. The design of the rim is also very important, with a black finish - painted or anodised - or a silver finish for a vintage look.
As for the spokes, different options are possible: rust-resistant stainless steel for urban bikes that are parked outside all the time, natural finish for a total silver look of the wheel, or steel when the cost must be optimised.
