Tech Features

A1 PREMIUM ALUMINUM FRAME
WHAT A1 Premium Aluminum frame, specially engineered for light-duty cargo.
WHY Creates a bike that’s durable enough for loaded transport, but light enough to carry up stairs and efficiently maneuver through city streets.
HOW By butting, swaging, and manipulating the Live’s alloy tubing, we optimize the bike for its particular application. Since it’s built for lightweight cargo, our engineers test potential loads, then create a unique frame geometry (with an adjusted head tube angle and fork offset to minimize “fork flop”) and integrated support structure for the basket.
INTEGRATED BASKET
WHAT Durable basket with alloy deck that’s designed as an integrated part of the frame.
WHY A stable, durable, and lightweight means of carrying your groceries, laptop, personal items, etc.
HOW The basket is engineered and designed specifically for the frame with an alloy deck, forged fork crown, and rack mounts for durable support.
FULL COVERAGE FENDERS & CHAINGUARD
WHAT Extra long, water- and debris-blocking steel fenders and chainguard.
WHY Protects the rider’s clothes and backside from road grit, splash, grease, etc., while reducing weather damage to the frame and components.
HOW The extra coverage over the tire prevents dirt and debris from kicking up onto the rider’s clothing or frame/components, and the chainguard surrounds the chain to keep grease away from pant legs. The fenders themselves are zinc-coated for weather-resistance, then primed, painted to match the frame, and clear coated, making them extremely durable against the elements.
