Testing the Wingee mudguards


The Chiyoda embodies pure elegance on two wheels, the cro-moly steel frame is lightweight and extremely stable. For fans of the classic and simple design the frame is also available in black or a range of vivid colours.

The Chiyoda keeps things clean and simple by using the excellent Tubus Wingee aluminium mudguards with built in rails for mounting a pair of pannier bags.

The frame has loads of clearance for a set of comfortable balloon tyres - the standard option is the Schwalbe Crazy Bobs, which can be run at pressures down to 30 psi for maximum comfort, and have enough grip for some dirt tracks or mud. The Wingee  mudguards are made of extruded aluminium section and the stays make an excellent invisible rack for a couple of panniers (up to 16 kilos each side). If you choose the dynamo lighting you will also get the minimalist Supernova Tail Light 2 integrated into the mudguard.

The Chiyoda is now available with Pinion gearbox - the Chiyoda Xpress with Tout Terrains unique TBA system combined with a Pinion shifter and the Gates Carbon Drive belt is an expression of a modern, urban lifestyle. The TBA system gives an easy way of tensioning the belt drive by simply turning a knob on the bottom bracket. Whether going to work every day or popping out to the café, the Chiyoda stands for technical superiority, reliability and low maintenance in every situation.
