This Takara Kabuto Single Speed Road Bike review is concentrating on the 54 cm or 21.3” for the steel post setting of the seat. The entire frame is made of steel that is tig-welded together except for the horizontal beam, which is made to be removable. The front forks are 1” steel threaded bars that are also tig-welded. The handle bars 42.5cm or 16.3” wide that curve downward so the rider can be in the tucked position when riding the bike.
The Takara Kabuto is a single speed bicycle that has a freewheel hub with a 16 tooth alloy gear that is bolted on. The crank set is a three piece steel unit with a 44 tooth that is 170mm or 6.7” in diameter. To help secure the rider’s feet, the pedals are equipped with a toe clip and alloy cage.
The rims are a single walled 32 hole alloy 27.5” that have mounted on them 27.5” X 1.3” tires. These tires are yellow which helps to make the bike look distinctive and they are directional. The spokes are made of stainless steel.
The brakes are the standard pull style with alloy components on the frame but plastic on the handlebars.
The total weight of the Takara Kabuto Single Speed Road Bike is 29.5 lbs. The tires are thicker than the standard road tires so pot holes and other obstructions in the city can be transversed without hindrance. Click Here for More Takara Kabuto Single Speed Road Bike Reviews or To See Prices.
