Has your bicycle broken down? Fixing it yourself is easy – that is, if you have a ‘1-2L’. All parts of this bike are connected with an identical joint system, so you can take it apart and reassemble it with a single tool. When cycling, that tool is part of the front luggage rack – light included. And when parked, it can be used as a lock. To avoid the need of a manual, the pieces have a colour sequence that is the same for each connection. So there is no excuse for avoiding repairs. Reliable and low-maintenance, this bike can be handed on for generations.
