Rikulau Ili ili Hercules CrMo Gravel bike

Gravel bike is neither a road bike nor an MTB.
As the word “gravel” implies, this bike is designed to have a comfortable and controlled ride on an unpaved or even a pothole filled city road.
It is fancy, it is charming, and it is the bike for you and me.

Instead of using traditional painting or plating, a phosphite coating is applied to form a protection layer with veins unique to each frame developed on top of the coating.
Then, a transparent black top layer is painted on. Rust will develop gradually underneath lively and artistically.
