German designer Ralf Holleis has created a fixed-gear bike focused around 3D-printed titanium hardware. Dubbed the VRZ 2 BELT and weighing in at just 4.9 kg (10.8 lbs), the bike includes a stem and seat stay among other connecting parts molded out of titanium using the latest in printing technology. The VRZ 2 BELT is designed to be lightweight yet heavy-duty and features a belt-drive crank system, carbon-fiber wheels, and just a sliver of a seat for an overall low profile. No word yet on any release date but we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
