Velo Orange Neutrino Mini Velo Frame
Whether you’re a frequent traveler, apartment dweller, multi-modal commuter, or just enjoy a fun N+1 bike, the Neutrino will fit perfectly into your heart.
For city and apartment dwellers, you’ll get great acceleration for stoplight racing as the wheels spin up quite fast. When you’ve reached your destination, getting the bike into the building, walking up stairs, and parking it in your apartment is so much easier because the physical length of the bike is greatly reduced. You can much more nimbly negotiate stairwells and since it’s warm and cozy inside, you don’t have to worry about it getting ripped off overnight.

For multi-modal traveling, it’s easier to take the bike in a train car without taking up a ton of room and attracting disdainful looks from fellow commuters. Oh and Rinko. Forget cutting fenders, removing handlebars, and wheels. Just loosen the stem, turn the handlebars 90 degrees, and put the whole thing into a Rinko bag!
Traveling with the Neutrino is also a breeze. Since we often travel to our cycling starting point by airplane, train, car, or bus, overage fees for checked bags, storage, and transportation add up quickly and are a real drag. To take full advantage of the traveling abilities of the Neutrino, the bike can be disassembled and inserted into the cardboard box that it comes with, or into the nylon travel bag we’re working on. Details coming soon on bags!
Simply put, the Neutrino is a blast to ride around. It’ll put a smile on your face every time you throw your leg over.

We carefully tweaked the geometry to obtain a completely normal riding bike without any drama. Since the sizing is a bit less-than-traditional, we generally suggest folks that are 5’6″ (168cm) and under go with a Small, and folks between 5’6″ and 6′ (183cm) go with a Large.
