As firm believers that a bicycle should be more than just a means to transport you from A to B, Venice Beach-based Solé Bicycles was started with the intentions to change the way we look at these two-wheeled companions. That is, your bicycle should be an extension of who you are, championing whatever cause you may be pursuing at the moment.
In the case of their Foamside bicycle, that cause can range from morning surf checks to afternoon coffee shop check-ins to evenings out with friends. And as a single-speed commuter bike, it hosts a simple yet clean and minimal design that equates to easy maintenance and longevity. The Foamside is also lightweight, weighing a modest 26 pounds, and comes equipped with a ‘flip-flop hub’ making for a summertime-friendly ride either on the beach boardwalk or while cruising through the city. Also, to make things as straightforward as possible, each bike is shipped directly to your home 90 percent assembled in order to get you out the door and on the road in no time. Solé also sells this bike as a fixed gear as well.
