Singapore's homegrown lifestyle bicycle brand, Coast Cycles, has introduced the Coast Cycles Ruckus, billed as 'a tandem without the bulk'. The bicycle won the Taipei Cycle d&i Award 2016.
The Coast Cycles Ruckus has a retro cromoly parallelogram frame and fat tyres, plus an extended saddle seat to allow a passenger to sit comfortably behind the cyclist. "In a world where people are bowing their heads to smartphones and tablets and getting not just neck pain and less social closeness, there is a real need to return to real human interaction. Conversations are important, and that was my motivation in designing the Ruckus," says Jansen Tan, founder of Coast Cycles,
The Coast Cycles Ruckus comes with a range of accessories, including a frame bag and bespoke front rack.
The Coast Cycles Ruckus is available in three colours: Fire Department Red, Stealth Black and Glacial White. Prices start from S$1,138 for a SRAM X4 8-Speed Chain model. Demo models of the new Coast Cycles Ruckus are available for test rides and photoshoots.
