Fahrradmanufaktur literally means "bike maker" and no one makes city bikes quite like them. Fahrradmanufaktur began in Berlin out of a consortium of city bike retailers who were frustrated that there was nothing between heavy Dutch bikes and high-performance road or mountain bikes. Set out to solve this, Fahrradmanufaktur first started a series of standardizations for city bikes that are still used by the German government today. Then they came out with their own bike. If you're looking for a lightweight bike that can multi-task city cycling and longer recreational bikes, Fahrradmanufaktur are bikes that takes the Dutch bikes and improves their quality in terms of weight, materials, quality, and geometry. Aesthetically clean and austere, Fahrradmanufaktur embodies the mantra that form is function - and functionally speaking, they're perfect. They're beautiful too; matte-black frames, a clean san-serif font, and a basket of German-made parts that make a perfect finished product.
