Ready to start your own build? Our ready-made Urban Scout frames are available in as little as 4 weeks and are a cost-effective alternative to a full custom build. These hard maple frames are the flagship of Normal Bicycles and embody the beautiful simplicity of what a wood bike is all about.
They weigh in around 6.5 lbs. thanks to our unique wood and carbon fiber composite construction, and are ISO-certified for a lifetime of rugged dependability.
With its relaxed road geometry the Urban Scout makes a great commuter, fitness hybrid, gravel, or touring bike. Our in-house designed rocker dropout system works great for traditional quick release & derailleur setups, or explore the possibilities of a single speed, internally geared hub, or belt drive setup.
Complete framesets are shipped with a Cane Creek 40 headset installed and a full carbon Whisky No.7 CX Disc fork.
