When designing Model No.5, we considered all the elements that make step-through cruiser bicycles so much fun to ride.
Classic lines with hop-on-and-go convenience. A comfortable upright riding position for endless afternoons in the park. Easy speed and power for the dash to make it home before sundown.
Go Slow on a Fast Bike
Model No.5 is a blast to ride, whether you’re dressed up for the office or dressed down for a weekend at the beach.
The No.5 inverted single-arc, twin-tubed cantilever frame naturally absorbs road shock and offers exceptional stability. With a frame weighing as little as 4 lbs, this bicycle is easy to maneuver. Handling is tight and quick and the frame geometry is tuned to efficiently transfer power to the pedals. Performance like this is rarely found in step-through frame designs.
Big 29-inch wheels and 2-inch German-made tires easily roll over rough pavement. Strong enough to hop curbs. Stable on gravel and dirt roads.
Grease-Free Belt Drive and Internal Gearing
The included Gates Carbon Belt Drive is quiet, clean and lasts virtually forever. Opt for a single speed or upgrade to an internally geared hub from Shimano or Rohloff, offering your choice of shifting and up to 14-speeds with a massive 526% gear range. Your entire drivetrain is grease-free – so you’ll never again worry about getting your clothes dirty.

Every Budnitz Bicycle is built by hand with our signature riser handlebars, seatpost, stem, badges, and top-of-the-line components from Formula, Paul Components, and Da Vinci. Available in ultra-lightweight titanium or traditionally responsive cro-moly steel.
