Bike for sale: Viva Kilo, $750.
This is a bike I tested for Bicycle Times. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Basically it’s a 7-speed tank-ish city bike with a very upright position, 26″ wheels and fat city tires. Chainguard, rack and fenders included. Internal gear hub and drum brakes, so it’s low-maintenance.

The brand, Viva, is Danish and has no dealers in the immediate area, so they’d rather sell it off than pay for shipping it back.

I’m curious, are the wheels 37-590 sized (old 3-speed size) or are they 26 MTB size?

What size chainring and cog on the drivetrain?

They’re regular 26″ MTB size, with Schwalbe Fat Frank tires.

Chainring is 42-tooth (although it’s an “every-other-tooth” design so it actually only has 21 teeth, but is 42 teeth big, if that makes sense), and the cog is 16t. Geared a bit high for around here but it would be easy to swap the cog.
