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. Chromoly is very strong and same time thanks to being flexible the frame would absorb road vibrations. Also the frame would last a very long time. With the rear rack, mudguards, the stand the bike would weigh around 12.5 KG.

Previous batch of this bicycles has a voluntry precationaty recall. More information about that bike is at http://iamfree.com/blogs/announcement-precautionary-recall-of-2016-paratrooper-type-bicycle-and-2017-jan-sep-i-am-free-girl-bicycle
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.
