MBM have created a sleek, cool looking bike in the 'Life'. It looks like something out of Tron. There was a clear decision to make a beautiful bike that has only what is necessary. Just beautiful craftsmanship.

The LIFE men’s bike by MBM is a hybrid bike that has a minimal, linear design but at the same time elegant and attractive and adapts to every need. It is available in two colours: black and white.
Lightweight and easy to use thanks to its aluminium frame which is available in 3 different sizes:
– 50 cm – for a height between 160 and 170 cm approximately;
– 54 cm for heights between 170 and 180 cm approx;
– 58cm – For those who measure approximately 180 to 190 cm.
Crankset and hubs are made of aluminum; it has 21 speed Shimano RS36 gears and 28 inch wheels.
In addition, MBM models are delivered assembled and ready to use, simply screw the pedals and insert the seat and handlebar.

The quality to price ratio is incredible, the design is very simple and pleasant. The bike is quite versatile and adapts to different usage scenarios. The frame is light and materials are discreet.

Aesthetics and design are very particular, with brown tires and white rims that give the bicycle a slight retro touch. The layer of paint is not very thick therefore, in order not to spoil it. We recommend applying thin strips of rubber in the points where the various accessories are to be placed, including the bottle cage. Of which there are no distinct holes, so we suggest using cable ties rather than damage the frame.

The braking system is made up of common “v-brakes” which guarantee good performance: the intensity of the braking is more modular than the mechanical disc brakes (with wire) but they suffer in wet conditions.

This bike is beautiful, it rides really really well and we can’t seem to find a fault with it. If your budget allows(and it should, as it’s not particularly expensive), you really should give it a chance.
