"I would like to get the lightest and most practical bicycle, and most importantly, not fussy, which would fit perfectly into the urban environment and street culture.”
Format Product Manager, Dmitry Ponomarev.
The Format 5343 is a true Street Fighter, perfect for urban manoeuvring. We took the visuals from the fixer culture, where the racing track bike is minimalism and maximum functionality.
Frame and design features.
The frame and plug are made of light aluminium alloy 6061. It is possible to install the trunk and full-size wings on the dropouts (Post Mount), if you want to drive in any weather. Convenience is added by the Format City saddle, specially selected for urban conditions.
The frame geometry combines the Trekking Series comfort and the Format Road Series swiftness. This combination allows to rapidly change trajectories and enjoy pleasure riding. The bike has a comfortable fit thanks to the correctly calculated Reach (426 mm) and Stack (555 mm) parameters.
Transmission type - Single speed, chain tension occurs due to an eccentric carriage. This solution, coupled with internal wiring, keeps the frame clean exterior. The bike uses a cartridge carriage from the Thun German manufacturer. Prowheel Solid cranks with 44 teeth sprocket.
Good rolling is achieved due to bushings on industrial bearings and WTB Thickslick 27.5x1.95 slick tires. Rear hub on the drum, with 1 sprocket spacer kit installed.
The Format 5343 is equipped with Tektro mechanical disc brakes and 160mm rotors.
The Format 5343 bike is an urban frenzy with no rules. It is the main event, the street attraction point.
