This is our first digital catalogue. We are trying to put

our information on the Internet instead of printing thousands

of catalogues that people take but seldom use.

I sometimes wonder if people must use them as fire

wood? Anyway this catalogue put up on ISSUU works

just like a paper catalogue but with links and has the

advantage that we can update any time. Enjoy it....

USED is a vibrant mix of modern mobility, ideas, art

and opinions. We are also busy in the pursuit of dreams

and a way to make the world work a touch better than

it is right now. We try to be green in our beliefs and

actions and think that living on the edge is better than

living in a sea of complacency. Our URBAN Mobility

portfolio includes URBAN Steel Bikes, Transport bikes

from Monark, Singlespeed, Fixed Gear, Comfort Bikes,

ScooterBikes, Trikes, trailers and lots of crazy stuff.

Home for us is 1800 square meters of factory warehouse

space next to the railway station in Quakenbrück.

We watch the trains go by and dream of a better world.

Environmentally friendly mobility is our goal. The bikes

are built in the cellar.

Being in the middle of the town has it’s advantages, the

Italian ice cream store is just down the road and we

are easy to reach because of the railway connection.

Quality has found it’s place in the old station complex.

Here’s where we build ScooterBikes, play basketball

and watch the tourists - and it’s also the starting point

of our quest for world domination.

Now we are also making our own electricity, with a

32kWh photovoltaic system. We push the electricity

back into the grid get paid for it. Anyone interested in

such a project, can get in touch.

So where’s Quakenbrück, I can here you asking? It’s a

sleepy town in the North-West of Germany, in between

Osnabrück and Oldenburg. Basketball fans will know it

as the home of the Artland Dragons, who play in the

German Premiere League. See Quakenbrück HERE.

U S E D S T E E L B I K E S

There was a big focus on Singlespeed and Fixed Gear

Bikes at the Bike Shows in Friedrichshafen, Cologne,

London and Vegas. USED was there and showing the

new USED STEEL BIKE range. The sound of visitors

smacking their lips and grabbing for the DigiCam was

something we got USED to on the stand. The response

was overwhelming.

The interest could be divided into two separate camps.

One group is interested in “retro” and bike culture and

wants everything to be very authentic, while the second

group is discovering Singlespeed as a way of moving

through the city fast and comfortable and cares

less for bike protocol. With our USED STEEL BIKES

we have something for both parties, beautiful lugged

frame bikes for the Track or the Tour, but also the perfect

Urban bike that is practical, multifunctional and

stylish. With both types of bikes we chose function over

the coolness factor.

We got a lot of questions about the abundance of

Fixed Gear and Singlespeed bikes. Our opinion can be

summed up with something Richard Ayling said about

our bike range: “The difference between our bikes and

some of the others offering similar bikes, can be compared

to music: There’s Punk rock and Jazz. It’s all

music, but the beat, the passion and the groove can

be different, not right or wrong, just different. We are

not Punk rockers, we are not building bikes for heroes,

we’re just playing jazz and if you catch our groove then

feel free. There are a lot of grooves out there.”

The Singlespeed USED URBAN STEEL BIKES are a

cooperation between Allegro Bikes from Melbourne,

Australia and USED. Richard Ayling, Allegro founder,

Track rider and Cycling coach (for people like Cadel Evans,

Stuart O‘Grady and Robbie McEwan in their junior

days) has done a great job on the specifications of

these bikes. He was able to melt beauty and function

with zeitgeist and attitude. These are bikes for a different

world.

The bikes have been made using the new Allegro Custom

Tubing in plain-guage and triple-butted ChroMoly-

Steel. This material gives the frames stability and the

flex steel riders have learned to appreciate.

The USED URBAN STEEL BIKE Line is Urban Mobility

pure, which is what USED has been preaching for

a while now. We are getting our team together, good

dedicated dealers, that understand our philosophy and

culture, with whom we can grow and prosper. Watch

out we’re coming!

URBAN COWBOY

../FILE_UNDER/26inch/SINGLESPEED

../URBAN_COWBOY/RIDERS

Loud Hawaiian Shirt and Rayban wearers with a street

attitude and the kind of guy that would ride a bike

in Vegas because no one else does. Blond, blue eyed

babes with a work-out subscription and a push-up bra

that want a bike that puts the spotlight on number

one. The MTT (mass transit transportation) guru, saving

money with a train card and a co2 calculator, wearing

a “switch2eco” t-shirt and saving for a hybrid. Metallica

fans with a beer belly and an appointment with

the welfare officer who thinks they live beyond their

means, but the bike will not betray them. The urban

cowboy whose horse got slaughtered and the only possible

replacement in the true and trusty department is

a black bike that knows exactly where the next watering

hole is.

And any one who wants to ride fast and Urban.

Fat tire Urban bike (26“)

In Europe you see hundreds and thousands of

bikes outside of railway stations. Simple bikes

built to bring the rider to work or school. The Urban

Cowboy is a Railway Bike in disguise. Matt

black and understatement pure, but under the

hood is a stallion rearing it’s head and ready to

break out of the compound. The UC is a mountain

bike in an urban scenario, it goes over potholes

and not around them, it rides in the wind stream

of buses and trucks, it brakes fast and rides hard.

The station bike - black beautiful and bold.

The days of flash bikes are over - You are

now the star.

ONYA - Road Speed Bike

Onya is speed. The Urban life is fast, and moving

in the city on this bike is faster. It ain’t no race

bike, but it’s fast, stylish and strong. We use steel

and only steel or ChroMoly to give it it’s proper

name. It flexes better than Alloy, is stronger and

has that timeless feel to it. It’s a cappuccino of a

bike, a lot of froth on top, but a great taste and

strong down to the last drop.

The bike is single speed, which means no gear cables

just two brakes and that’s it. None of the crap

most bikes carry these days. But move into option

mode and you can make this beauty sing. Need a

rack, a lock, a leather saddle, a drop handlebar?

We’ve been there and done that and we can

do it again and now.

HHT

../STORY/HHT

The Mother of all haulage bikes: The HHT

When you talk about the perfect bike, it’s easy to

talk about high load capacity, fast and sporty, that

mixture between fast and strong, like the racehorse

that could also pull the beer wagon. You

want it to do everything, but everything good.

Maybe the HHT can be that for you.

Let’s start with the material – it’s a steel bike

made of ChroMoly tubing. TIG-welded and light.

The frame with horizontal dropouts has eyelets

for front and rear racks and space for two water

bottles.

The bike is spec’d as single speed, but for the

weak among you we can put a 3-speed or 8-speed

hub gear in. It even has a derailleur tab for your

own brand of gears. You want brakes? We’ve got

V-brakes or disc, choose your own poison. This

bike will take you there and back and keep you

safe and warm and raise your street credibility at

the same time.

We’re gonna get the mule train moving.

PISTA - TRACK

../STORY/PISTA

Track or Pista as they say in Italy and not just

after a late night in the local pub, is a track bike

with a flip-flop hub. This means it can be used

as a fixed or as a singlespeed. This bike is “Track

legal”, which means it has no braze-ons and can

be ridden on the Velodrome. Richard Ayling has

been riding and building these bikes for years

and knew exactly what was needed. You can read

a lot about fixed speed bikes these days, even

the New York Times has had an article about the

maverick riders of NYC. This attention has made

riding fixed “hip”, but the ride to the beer garden

or cruising by the local ice cream parlour is not

enough for this beauty. Riding “fixed” is a way of

life and not just “this weeks flavour”.

It’s important to say here, that fixed riding on

the street, could be illegal in your country. Please

check this before riding. The PISTA can be fitted

with a front brake for street use and we suggest

this for safety reasons.

Enjoy the lugs of passion....

../STORY/TOUR

It’s not about something new, it’s not about fashion

or “this years model”, it’s about “tried and

trusty, safe and serious”. This frame is not what

people call “funky”, but it’ll take you to hell and

back, while carrying everything you need to spend

some time there. The frames are not made of Alloy

or Carbon, but of Allegro ChroMoly steel, a material

that will not let you down. The lugged frame is

how they built frames back in the old days, back

when men were men. This lugged ChroMoly frame

has flex, but is still stiff enough to go everywhere

you want to go.

For this bike say “comfortable” and “enduring” and

it does that fully loaded. It’s got eyelets all over

the place and comes with a complete Shimano

105 group. It’s a traditional Radonneur bike and

you won’t see the “Superlite” sign above it in the

store, but that’s not what we were trying to do.

The job at hand was to fit

like a glove and that’s the

way we build bikes. Richard

Ayling has been twiddling with the

geometry for years now and he’ll

tell you, he’s almost there. But

you know that designers never

say “finished”!

BiGBOY

../STORY/BiGBOY

You want to loose weight or maybe you don’t.

You’re tired of the smart alec things people say

about you or you don’t give a damn. You are you

- you must stay you and that’s good. And cycling?

Of course you want to cycle but you’re scared

because you heard that normal bikes are just for

people under 80 kilo. So what’s to do?

The bike for BiGBOYS. Take a little “Retro”, add

a little “Modern Technology” and the BiGBOY is

ready. Built to carry weight, but at the same time

comfortable and stylish. What the Fatboy for

Harley Davidson is, is the BiGBOY for Cactus10.

Steel lugged frame, hand soldered in Germany,

Stainless parts, a Hub Dynamo and a Brooks

leather saddle. Available in 3, 7 or 8 speed with

Schwalbe ballon tires (The big ones!). This bike

transforms a heavyweight into a mobile, easy

moving heavyweight. We can’t work wonders and

the Tour de France is still far away, but now even

a BiGBOY can make it!

We call them Heavy Metal bikes!

HotToddy: Hip flask with the special holder! We stole

the hip flask idea from Surly, but it‘s also the Scottish

influence from Nick Lobnitz/Carry Freedom. The logo

ist sand blasted by us, so that no two flasks are the

Oregon, who makes great bikes as well.

Eleven is a new brand for singlespeed and track parts, from USED and Allegro. We took the name from the film

„Spinal Tap“, because they turned it up to 11. All this plus bars, bags and stuff is in the pipeline. More later.
