2010 Torker Bikes Sneak Peak

I just saw sneak peak of the 2010 Torker Big T. From what I can tell, they’re using the same frame as the Cargo T, but made it a single speed.

The Interurban E. It looks like they’re using the same technology that can be found on the Torker T450-E.

    The KB2…what’s the story with that one? Is it a fixed freestyle bike?

    For some reason, I wish the Interurban had disc brakes…a boy can dream.

    The KB2 has a two speed coaster brake rear hub. It’s Sturmey Archer, but it works just the same as the old Bendixes (bendices?) – you backpedal just a bit to shift, and all the way to brake. The Urbis (not shown [yet]) is the fixed freestyle bike.

    Yeah, what Val said: KB2 = Kick-Back 2-Speed.

    I really like what happened with the Big T. It’s about time that bike got an update. I can imagine many flat-city urbanites in need of a utilitarian whip being very satisfied with that bike.

    Is the Cargo T still going to be available in its current guise (front rack, 3-speed in rear)? Because even though I live in the flats, I really prefer having some gearing choices when hauling a load.

    Actually, the Cargo T is getting updated as well – 5 speed rear hub, and drum brakes front & rear. It’s nice.
