This past week I took delivery of a couple large boxes from Civia Cycles. Inside was a very well packaged Civia Loring, a rear rack and pretty cool fenders. This Loring is in for review but is still waiting for its very large front basket so for now there are photos and your basic details from Civia themselves.
Whether tooling around town, cruising campus or pedaling to the grocer, the Civia Loring offers supreme comfort, safety and utility. From its gently sloping top tube to its bamboo fenders and matching trim, the Loring is a study in elegance, simplicity and fun. Designed for short runs of five miles or less, the Loring carries up to 50 pounds of cargo while delivering an exceptionally balanced ride. The Loring features a steel frame, disc brakes and a three or nine-speed internally geared hub.
