Wanna a Leafcycles klunkers for an absolutely bargain price? This klunkers is the 10 years anniversary bike of the brand Leafcycles and it should remember the pioneering days of mountain biking. Almost four decades ago, a handful stoned hippies build motocross handlebars and balloon tires onto their beach cruiser to smoke down the fireroads of Mount Tamalpais, north of San Francico . Now the klunkers celebrates its revival.

What is this project all about?

This Leafcycles klunker commemorates the pioneering days of mountain biking, as of old rusty Beach Cruisers all useless part were unscrewed to prepare it for serious offroad action. The Leafcycles klunker is a simple, reliable bike for everyday use, with lots of style and quite some offroad history.

Whether you carry a surfboard under your arm along the beach promenade, transport your girlfriend an the wide handlebar, speed through the city over cobblestones or just do a bike ride through town and country. The Leafcycles klunker is a minimalist, reliable and accurate bicycle for your daily use.

No question, a clunker is made for cruising and cheaper parts and a simple steel frame would be sufficient. But we want to stay true with our philosophy. The frame is the heart of each bicycle and therefore Leafcycles want to convince with a quality frame, fork and bar setup. Those of you who want to pimp their bike later to get a base, which worth to refine. For this reason the Leafcycles klunker frame, fork and bar is made of 100% high quality chromoly tube sets.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

The Leafcycles klunker is for everyone who wants a bicycle for cruising around. This bike is simple, sturdy and comfortable and it tells the story, as klunkers has changed the bike world, by laying the headstone of the mountainbike industry.
Klunker bikes are far away from any trend and mass markets, but Leafcycles does not care. We hust love those kind of bikes.

The aim of this crowdfunding campaign is to reach the minimum production quantity to bring this bike to reality. It is all up to you.

Why would you support this project?

Leafcycles does not want to change the world. I just want to develop bicycles that convince by function and design. Hopefully you as well!

This crowdfunding campaign is limited to 150 bikes. The first 150 clunker pilots who support this project, get this absolute bargain price and on top an "old school Miles branded racing jersey“, supported by our cooperation partner „Leatt“.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

If the project is getting a success, then the majority is to get the production running. Part of the proceeds is invested in financing a bike festival of a different kind.

We turn the clock back by almost forty years, and invite you to an event in its most original form. Just as simple as some bike hippies once experienced. Far away from any high-end technologies. Two days pure fun with heaps of racing action, side events for young and old, campfire, BBQ and workshops. The rules are as simple as the bicycles. It is only allowed to compete on klunkers (or beach cruisers). Invited is of course every klunker or beach cruiser pilot, no matter whether it is a Leafcycles bike or not, everyone is welcome. It's all about some fun together with like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere.

Let's get the bacon rollin'

Who are the people behind the project?

Leafcycles, thats just me, Frank. Even as a little boy a bike for me was much more than just a mobility. Together with my friends I spent virtually my entire youth on the seat. We did self organized off-road racing on the nearby motorcross track, played bicycle soccer by our own rules, explored the forests, built our own launch ramps and made braking contest to see, who can bring the longest skid mark on the asphalt. We went through heaps of material. As a 12-year-old kid, I started to disassemble my own bike to service it.
Eventually I realized that passion has to become my profession. In 2007, this dream became reality.
