This is a well made sturdy bicycle that comes with ultra strong lightweight Chromoly frame and a fork that would absorb road vibrations. And also you get a good quality Shimano- 8 speed gear-set.

The bicycle has latest in Innova Puncture Resistant road tyres and tubes. Well made parts. plus with the warranty, you are in good hands. Never fear when i am free is here.
Every i am free bicycle gets a lot of attention when it comes to design and parts selection. This is a unisex bicycle. Made by a super awesome friendly people at a factory in beautiful Hangzhou in China. This is a new factory that i am free bicycles is partnering with and they also make bikes for some big named American bicycle brands. So this bike comes from the same production line
Personally think this is a well made, stylish bike and a steal for its price. It is that as a company during growth stages it is important to offer a quality bicycle at a economical price rather than think too much about the profits. This bike is offered direct from the factory to i am free bicycles then to you. So we don't have a single middleman to pay for. Please feel free to come and test ride and would be very happy to offer that.
The frame and the fork it is made with high quality lightweight Chromoly 4130 (Cr-Mo) . Chromoly is the workhorse of steel and is a mix of steel with Chromium, Molybdenum, Carbon, Manganese, Sulphur and Phosphorus. Thanks to its composition Chromoly frames are not as rigid as steel or alloy and absorb road vibration. Also the frame would last a very long time. With mudguards, the stand the bike would weigh around 12 KG.
It has a very custom designed fork. It is super strong and sturdy.
The welding on this bicycle is world class and please come and have a look at it closely. Some parts cannot even see the weldings, it is that well-done.
Colour: Matte black (now this is pure matte black not the semi or satin matte black. This is powder coated paint and when you look at the bicycle in close distance it looks like this bike is made with black steel rather than painted. Paint almost absorbed by the frame and gives almost ghost like finish.)
These brakes are very responsive in rain, really low maintenance. They automatically adjust the pads as you ride as well as pads wear over time. Sometimes you do not have to touch these brakes for years. Cable runs with mineral disc brake oil and has three finger lever. You can lever the brakes with a single finger if you want as they are that responsive.

Bicycles sold at the store are fully assembled and ready to ride. There are few bikes already setup and looking forward to serve. Very happy to offer a test ride. If you like a bicycle, you are very welcome to purchase that bicycle on the spot.
If you purchased a bicycle online and would like it delivered then, the bike would come in a box and 85% assembled so not that difficult to setup. It is highly recommended that newly assembled shipped bike gets double checked by a professional or get built by a professional bike mechanic. Before shipping we would unbox a bicycle and do some checks. That way you would have a minimum setup. Also a peace of mind from us knowing that all is well before a bike being sent.
Thank you very much.
