The coren :: The Urban Carbon Bike

By September 14, 2012Bicycles

Created by UBC designer Christian Zanzotti, it takes forty hours to handcraft a coren. Yours for only $33,000. (I had to double check my math on this figure).

From UBC: Tolerances at Formula 1 level
It takes 40 hours to make a coren by hand and almost everything that applies to traditional bicycle production goes by the board. The design and the size of the frame are based on a new approach: UBC fits the down tube, the top tube and the seat tube together on an adjustable frame gauge. The bike owes its unique appearance particularly to the connection of the top tube and the seat tube, to the delicate cross- section and the faultless quality of the material and workmanship. To guarantee this, the UBC engineers monitor the materials and the workmanship on their own premises – in tolerance limits equivalent to the most stringent demands made of Formula 1, DTM, racing and high performance sports cars. UBC has made a name for itself throughout the world with the engineering and manufacture of high-quality carbon fibre components for customers such as Porsche, Bugatti and Audi.
