TATO Commuter Bike Includes A Convenient Place To Store Your Briefcase

By Andrew Liszewski

There’s not nearly enough storage space to make this bike useful for an extended road trip, but commuters who are tired of getting to work with a sweaty back thanks to a backpack, or are simply embarrassed about having a basket on their handlebars, should appreciate its design. Integrated into the frame of the bike is a storage compartment that’s perfectly sized for a briefcase, messenger bag or even a laptop bag since it provides considerable more protection than a pannier hanging off the side. And because the compartment is centered in the middle of the bike it also doesn’t hinder your balance when riding, even when fully loaded. It’s available from TATO directly for just over $1,500. (CHF 1,599)

    You'd think that for $1500 a “commuter” bike would include fender/splash guards (and possibly a chain guard). A non-sweaty back isn't much good if the rest of you is covered in road-spray.

    1500 seems a little steep for a bike that I would only ride to work…

    I think my knees would hit as I pedal

    Clearly that extra piece of metal is worth the $1500 price tag.
