Exploring Spanish Back Alleys with the Kona Big Rove and Dr Dew

Just last week we released Chasing Sunshine, a video and photo feature showcasing our PhD and Esatto Fast models being ridden in Malaga, Spain. Following up on that, we’ve got a double hit for you featuring two city bikes with different attitudes.

The Dr Dew and Big Rove are both fun-loving and dependable urban bikes, available worldwide and built ready for anything your city can throw at them. Disc brakes, fast and comfortable tires, and the comfort of an upright position ensure both of these bikes are ready to hit (and sometimes avoid) the cobbles, pavement, potholes, grass, dirt, gravel, tarmac, boardwalks and marble.

The Dr Dew, with its single ring drivetrain, can’t help but catch your eye. The simple wide range of gears is perfect for flat cruises but also makes quick work of fast hill sprints. The sensible fenders, hydraulic disc brakes and plush Clement 40c tires showcase our attention to urban environments. The Dr Dew is designed to turn heads – it’s up to you to turn the wheels.

If no one has coined the phrase “urban assault vehicle,” we’ll apply it to the Big Rove. Perfect for local bike paths and roughed-up back alleys, the big-tired Rove can handle them all with aplomb. And the lightweight aluminum frame is nimble, durable and built to handle a lifetime of urban abuse.
