The term “classic” is an elusive moniker. It evokes a sense of quality, of style, and of substance to last the ages. Some only come to be considered classics after years of long-standing service, while others are recognized right away. Our Classic 4400 has those qualities that make it obvious that this bike is a true “classic” from the moment it rolls off our assembly line.

We’ve taken traditional styling and frame geometry and modernized it in every way. From it’s double-butted aluminum frame… to it’s carbon fork… to it’s sparkling 27-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, the 4400 offers the features of a high-dollar road bike at a not-so-high-dollar price.

On the road you’ll find the 4400 a willing accomplice… with every stroke of the pedal you’ll feel the ease with which this remarkably agile machine achieves speed… with every shift you’ll marvel at the smoothness of the finely matched componentry… and with every envious glance from other riders and passersby you’ll glory in the pride of ownership of this exceptional bike.

City to develop comprehensive bicycle plan

ASHEVILLE – The city of Asheville is asking area residents to offer ideas for making the city more bicycle-friendly. Nationally known experts on bicycle planning will be in Asheville this week to share information and gather public input at an open house from 4-7 p.m. Thursday in the Public Works Building.

The city has hired consultants from Toole Design Group and Livable Streets, Inc. to prepare Asheville’s first comprehensive bicycle plan. The plan, which is partially funded by the North Carolina DOT, will provide recommendations for short-term and long-term improvements for bicycle transportation. Strategies might include completing key links in the Asheville greenway system, and connecting that system to on-road improvements such as bike lanes or paved shoulders.

“We want to make it easier for bicyclists and motorists to safely share the road,” said Dan Baechtold, a transportation planner with the French Broad River MPO, who is assisting the city on this project. “This plan will help identify priorities for making investments in bicycle transportation.”
