PETALING JAYA, 8 DEC 2012 - Japan’s Number 1 small wheel bike is now available in Malaysia. Tyrell bicycles was established in 2004 in Japan with the purpose of providing a truly unique riding machine to discerning cyclists. The product launch was officiated by M.Hirose, creator and owner of Tyrell bicycles at Van's Urban Bicycle Co. Hirose explained about the unique range of Tyrell bikes that specifically designed to cater unique individuals.
Tyrell’s design offers a fresh concept. Its design stresses on the highest standard and quality control. The material used for the frames are titanium alloy (Ti-3Al 2.5V) PKZ and PK1 and Si - Scandium alloy which makes it of extremely high grade and light. This combination is perfect in producing a very light yet rigid frame. Both materials are highly corrosion resistant. The frame is joined in 17 places and welded carefully by hand. Heat treatment is added to improve the strength of the frame.
Tyrell’s unique slant frame design with many triangulations provides for solid rigidity via its long front head tube. The design also allows for a low center of gravity creating more stability and road holding for the rider. Flex is almost negligible for these bikes and they are often installed with top end groupsets like SRAM Red and Shimano Dura Ace.
Carbon Yoke (Rear)
The carbon yoke is patent technology to the rear suspension of the Tyrell SZ. With a link structure, the honeycomb carbon yoke wraps the leaf spring with the carbon resin. This yoke absorbs all punishing road surfaces. SZ is undergoing a re-design and availability will be for the new season.
Tyrell bicycles distinguish themselves from others as they are:
- ultra light weight (weighing between 6.9kg and 9kg)
- made from unique titanium and aluminium alloys – (such as scandium)
- premium 20-inch mini bicycles
- carbon monocoque fork
