Puma Rolls Out the ‘Funk’ and Other New Bikes

06.17.10 Bucky Turco


As part of their ongoing commitment to cycling (and commerce), Puma released its latest series of collaborative Biomega bikes, but it’s the Funk model that piqued our interest most. The single speed sports a flip-flop hub allowing riders to choose between fixed gear and freewheel—so make sure you hold on to those brakes. All-in-all, It’s a little pricey, design heavy and offers nothing special, component-wise, but it is a nice nod by a footwear/apparel brand that consistently appears to have more chips in the cycling game than any of its competitors. They also get points for NOT perverting it with riser bars.
