    And Yet Another New Citizen Bike...The GOTHAM2!

    Here's Citizen Bike's newest member, the GOTHAM2:

    http://www.citizenbike.com/catalog.a...&product_id=24

    Check out the cool looking "see through" frame, bladed fork, and a 7 speed cluster with what appears to be a "Megarange" in spite of the component list saying it's a 14-28. It might be the 13-32 or 13-34 cluster which would be quite an improvement over the six speed model.

    The top tube has the braze-on for mounting a water bottle cage. First I've seen on a Citizen Bike.

    Price: $304. Two sizes: M/L. 25 lbs. Looks sweet!

    Edit: I noticed that the MTA Metrobike and the "portable" St. Tropez are no longer on the website...possibly sold out.

    Very stylish and the multiple frame sizes are interesting (a first for a budget folder?). I wonder how it rides.

    I like this bike! LOL!

    I wonder why no one ever came out with a 34' cluster before? I like the fact someone realized that if you are not going to include a double ring for that low gear, might as well do this on a casette. Very good ideas.

    Good looking bike. I'm sure Batman would be proud.
    I like it, except that the handle bar height doesn't appear to be adjustable.

    I noticed that too. It appears to be their "no nonsense" bike, and maybe the reason for such "spartan comforts".
