Linus x Clare V.

A 3-speed Linus x Clare V exclusive collaboration

Regular price $799.00

Founded by Clare Vivier, Clare V. is a handbag, accessories and apparel brand based in Los Angeles. Known for classic style that’s unexpected, with hints of both California cool and Parisian charm, the brand gives back both to the local community, where it’s been made since 2008, and to various causes and organizations, like Every Mother Counts, Everytown For Gun Safety, Color of Change and through product partnerships and activations.

"As another LA brand, we’ve always felt a strong affinity for Clare V. She’s French, we’re francophiles, and we particularly admire Clare’s use of color and how she achieves high design, but with humor and a bit of carefree California attitude. Clare and the team said they needed bikes to ride around the reservoir, to get coffee, and just for some fresh air and a little sunshine… and that’s exactly what we make bikes for." - Adam McDermott, Founder of Linus

  • Clare V

    This collaboration with Linus Bike has been a dream because I've always admired Linus's chic bikes, and they're an LA company as well! The bright and cheery, Clare V. green, red, and blue bikes are perfect for a quick ride to take a break and get some air during a busy workday, and we're super lucky to have a La Colombe cafe about a 5 minute ride down the path. :)" - Clare Vivier, Founder of Clare V.
  • Headset

    The flat surface of a head set is a place where water often settles and over time rust develops. That's why we chose to make our sets out of aluminum so they don’t rust.
  • Internal Gears

    This bike is internally geared, which means you have the benefit of multiple gears without a cumbersome derailleur. For city riding, internal gears have many advantages. They are extremely reliable, require very little maintenance, you can shift without pedaling, and they're very easy to use.
  • Reflective Tire Wall

    This bike has reflective tire walls, greatly enhancing your visibility at night. You can see quite clearly that without the reflective tire wall, a bike is nearly invisible on a dark street.
  • Sealed Bearings

    This bike has sealed bearings in the front hub. The advantages of sealed bearings over loose bearings are less friction, no maintenance, and more resistant to grit, grime and weather, making for smooth rides and extending the life of the bike.

*Note: Some riders may be a little outside these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller size. Stand over height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden. As long as the rider can reach the ground while sitting on the saddle, even if it's just their toes, this size will be compatible with their height
