About the Build

Hey now! There are good looking bikes, and then there are good looking bikes, and then comes the Mosaic RT-1. This in no way is to say aesthetics excel over performance, because this bike, as do all the products in Mosaic’s lineup, offer both with ease. Jaw dropping looks coupled with a mind boggling ride that will last you a lifetime.

This particular RT-1 just so happens to belong to our own resident road bike connoisseur, Drew, and it is immediately apparent, he is one to sweat the details. A quick glance through the build specs provide a glance onto the bicycle wish list of a multitude of riders. As mentioned above, a build like this is a lifetime bike for so many, and that is something we have come to revel in and one of the many things we are always excited about in helping our customers make happen.

Without going too far into what, or whom for that matter, Mosaic Cycles is. It is probably best that we simply offer you their three key attributes of which the brand was born.
• Objects that precisely obey without being dainty or delicate.
• Mechanisms that rebuff the natural elements, continued use and the expectations of demanding owners.
• Design aesthetics which command attention by virtue of their striking simplicity.

Simply put, these are words every craftsman or end user should look for in their go to machines and tools, yet it is something far fewer manage to bring to fruition. Though these are areas Mosaic has obviously excelled in and we couldn’t be happier to offer these beautiful machines to our customers.
