In our nine years of supporting Melbourne’s cyclists, we’ve stocked (and continue to stock) quite a broad range of bikes for different purposes. However, most have the ability to work very effectively as transport – perhaps even a daily commuter. However, when we looked at what we could offer, we saw a gap – something that handled well, was light, a good price, rode effortlessly and most importantly, was versatile enough to work for many purposes, and have the ability to be further accessorised to meet an individual’s unique requirements.
Designed for Melbourne by the team here at Velo Cycles Carlton is an affordable, quality urban steed. With a clean, understated look that reflects Melbourne’s style, it’s durable, practical and fun to ride, ready to handle all your commuting duties with aplomb. Perfect as a commuter for your ride to work or school, cruising down to the park, or pedalling the Yarra Trail on the weekend.
It’s available in four sizes, 15″ and 17″ in silver, or 19″ and 21″ in black and is great as is, but it’s also built to be able to have a multitude of uses. There’s plenty of room for adding full-length mudguards and all but the 15″ can have a rear rack easily fitted. And, of course, there’s a multitude of options for grips, saddle or tyre upgrades to suit your requirements.
- Aluminium frame is light and nimble

- Tough, v-section wheels stand up to harsh treatment
