When it comes to the world of automotive-bicycle crossover products, the end result can range from cringe-worthy to outrageous and incredibly expensive. Even BMW has a history of, uh, questionably designed bicycles, but the latest M Bike looks… good?
Sure, it’s just a fitness hybrid with an interesting frame design, but the whole thing is remarkably clean and well speced. The geometry looks decent, it has a carbon fork and seat post, and a simple but effective 1×11 drivetrain with a Shimano XT Shadow RD+ rear derailleur. There’s also hydraulic disc brakes, Ergon grips, Continental tires, and an FSA crankset – not to mention the robust looking kickstand, bell, and the included flat/SPD pedals.
Priced at $1,400, without seeing the full spec it seems like it could be competitively priced as well.
Introduced by our friend, Tibor Simai, the M Bike can be purchased in S, M, or L (no geometry tables provided), directly from the BMW website.
