    The Downtube Mini has an 8 speed hub and ERTO 305 wheels.

    What is the dropout width of the bike?

    The Curve SL '08 has a Nexus 8. They replaced the Big Apple tires with Marathon Racers for some reason. Apparently only available in Japan for now.

    seems to be an interesting bike. Swedes seems be wrong country to live in.
    We don't have a dealer for The Downtube here. I have to go to their site then.
