Studio time

Preparing for launch, we spent quality time this week in the photo studio with the first Meter bike, set to be released this summer.

The very first bike of our upcoming model is on Swedish ground. It is carefully crafted in a small, limited edition to provide a unique experience. Launch is set to this summer and we are so exited soon being able to show it to you.

Out and about!

25,4 kg bicycle parcel is ready for takeoff. Traveling in cardboard style, our very first piece of our upcoming model is now heading for Sweden.

We are so exited soon being able to unveil it for you. Won’t be long now![fusion_separator style_type=”none” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” sep_color=”” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center”][/fusion_separator]

Everything served strong

There is nothing better than morning coffee served with a brand new battery! This one will soon be an integrated part in our upcoming model. As you may notice, coffee is served in Taiwan, where Linus is currently working on the finishing details. It won’t be long now until this bike is ready for its first travel to Sweden!

Cykelprofiler startar Meter Bikes

Cykelduon Linus Lindgren och Rickard Ölander startar om på nya kula. Tillsammans med AD:n Charlotte Askari lanserar de Meter Bikes, där receptet stavas småskalig produktion, limiterade cyklar och sylvass kvalitet.

Rickard Ölander är tävlingscyklisten som värvades av Linus Lindgren för att driva en cykelfabrik. För fyra år sedan sålde de fabriken och Ölander sadlade om än en gång – den här gången till konstnär. Men nerven för cykling försvann inte. Mellan utställningarna med moderna samtidskonstnärer grodde tanken på ett nytt småskaligt cykelmärke med premiumfinish i varje led.

Linus Lindgren är uppväxt i en cykelälskande familj och har arbetat med produktion och cykelkonstruktion sedan tonåren. Tillsammans med Ölander har han designat och konstruerat allt från racercyklar och mountainbikes till en hybrid som finns representerad i Röhsska museets samlingar. Att bygga vidare på cykelkompetensen med Ölander var naturligt.

Med AD:n Charlotte Askari som tredje medlem var uppstället till Meter Bikes komplett.

– Det här är inget avkastningsprojekt utan ett hjärteprojekt. Med vår samlade kompetens och erfarenhet har vi möjlighet att bygga cyklar så som vi själva hade önskat dem. Med Meter Bikes gör vi nu precis det, säger Linus Lindgren.

Första modellen från Meter Bikes är en elcykel i limiterad upplaga. Ännu omgärdas modellen av mycket hysch-hysch men till sommaren planeras för premiärvisning. Då går även startskottet för sälj för cykelsugna som vill förteckna sig. Till hösten beräknas de första cyklarna rulla ut.

Introducing Meter Bikes

Hi there! Say hello to Meter Bikes, a company from Gothenburg, birthed …right … now!

Creating yet another bike in a crowded market might seem crazy. Is another bicycle really what the world need right now? Our answer is simply yes. Be free and flexible, stay in good health and enjoy the company of the kindest community of all.

Our team of three has been part of the bicycle industri for over 20 years. As professional road racing cyclist. As bike designers. As employers of skilled craftsmen and women building bikes. As promoter of cycling in Sweden. Simply put – we love bicycles and all the good stuff that comes with it. Now we are building Meter with the sole intention to reflect just that.

Meter is carefully crafted in a small, limited edition to provide a unique experience. Our goal is not to take on the world, we prefer to stay close to you. For as long as you choose, we will be right by your side to assist you, encourage you and celebrate all your achievements. Being free from ties to investors or annual demands, our only consideration is towards you.

This spring marks the start of Meter. Our first model is to be released autumn 2019. In this blog, you can join the journey towards the very first Meter bike.

We would love to hear your wise thoughts and input, so feel free to leave a comment below.

 

Rickard, Linus and Charlotte
