Back Alley




Designed for navigating the urban jungle, the Back Alley is a single-speed steel bike created in collaboration with Olympic cycling medalist Nelson Vails. This city bike features flat bars to make easy work of spotting and dodging obstacles. The flip-flop rear wheel can be run as a fixed gear or freehub to suit your style. Nelson’s best friend, the graffiti artist Zephyr, designed the red colorway, featuring understated references to Nelson’s early days as a bike messenger in New York City, such as his signature Converse high-tops and Cat’s Paw Hill in Central Park, where Nelson and his crew would ride. The grey colorway offers an unadorned option for the true minimalist. Master your urban domain on the Back Alley.
