NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, MA…The new year and in comes a new approach to biking. Jango, meaning “change and go” features a line of multi-application bicycles, jauntily rolls into independent bike stores this January. Designed by bike innovator Topeak, Jango blends a totally integrated approach to maximize comfort, safety, utility, fitness, recreation and ecological benefits.
Initially there are two models to cover a variety of cycling styles, Jango is intended for every day use. Jango frames feature user-friendly “ports” for attachment and removal of dedicated Jango racks, bags and other accessories allowing the user to quickly shift from shopping or commuting to recreation. Saddles, stems, grips, pedals and frame geometry are designed for maximum comfort and adjustability while integrated lights, locks and security features increase safety and security.
Jango is simple to use and understand – no complicated technical knowledge required. The innovative modular system guarantees your enjoyment. Everything is possible from a minimalist sporty fitness bike to a fully equipped travel bike with trailer. Functional, elegant and simple.
Models to be available in January include the Jango 7.0 women’s edition in white and Jango 7.1 men’s edition in silver. Prior to this 2009 release, Topeak won the IF Eurobike Award Gold for Jango Bikes. Manufacturers suggest retail pricing (MSRP) for each Jango models is $1,500.
“You want to shoot into town and pick up a bottle of wine and a loaf of artisan bread, just add a basket to the front and head out,” notes Neal Todrys, President of Topeak and Jango. He added, “Or you can quickly slide off the basket and other attachments and enjoy a quick ride after work. Perhaps you are more ambitious and are heading out for a weekend tour – Jango even offers a sleek trailer for extra gear.”
Todry’s underscored, “Jango is intended to be stylish and catch the eye of your neighbors and co-workers. At the same time, Jango is flexible to meet your biking mood and your next adventure.”
