The Emer Swift is a bit of a departure from typical cruisers in that it has one of the shortest chain stay lengths available in a 24″.

Clocking in at tight 13.75″, I don’t think I have seen chain stays this short since the photos of the Greg Melms-designed¬† frame that were floating around the internet in 2009.

The rest of the specs are:

  • 21.25″ top tube
  • 74.5 degree head tube angle
  • 73 degree seat tube angle
  • 11.5″ bottom bracket height.

If you’re into manuals this may be just the ticket.

To see it in action, check out this video of the Emer Swift cruiser getting a workout by Brixton Billy, Chico Hooke and Will Herman.
