2017 Daybird Buy Gallery Video Specs Geometry

2017 Daybird $549.99 | Black or Military Blue

Classic 1960’s 3-speed cruisers are some of our favorite bikes. The Daybird takes inspiration from the old bikes we admire and adds in carefully selected modern improvements.

On the classic side you’ll find Sturmey Archer’s 3-speed hub combined with a durable and intuitive aluminum thumb shifter. The high quality steel frame features a time-proven comfortable riding position.

On the modern side you’ll find light-weight, polished Aluminum fenders and a chain-guard. The latest version of the Daybird uses traditional 3-piece cranks, a threaded English bottom bracket spec, and tires that are protected by an extra-thick tread. Choose the Daybird as a Standard or Step-thru.
