The Silk with the Select Group brings the smooth, quiet and clean combination of Gates CenterTrack Carbon Belt Drive technology with a Shimano Alfine 8 Internal Hub at a reasonable price.

The Silk Select Group includes an upgrade to the new Bike Friday cartridge threadless headset.

The Select Silk includes the new Bike Friday cartridge threadless headset, a Gates Carbon Belt CDC Drive to go with Alfine 8 Internal Hub, Nexus Twist Shifters, Avid disc brakes and Kenda Kontact [406] tires.

With the Select Group, you select your frame size from three basic options (52 cm, 56 cm and 60 cm top tube equivalents), choose a frame color (Flag Red, Green Gear Green, Cream Soda Blue and Ink Black are no charge) as well as one of seven decal/cable housing color options.

A Bike Consultant will take your body measurements to help determine what frame size will fit your body. You can compare frame color and decal/cable housing color combinations by viewing our Color Module.

The Select Group makes ordering so simple that you can submit a basic order by filling out the Select Order Form.

NOTE: Saddle and Pedals are not included.

If you are not certain which Bike Friday will best fit your needs, you can look at our Comparison Chart for more information, but the best way to know that you are getting the perfect Bike Friday for your dreams of adventure is to contact a Bike Consultant for an interview.
