We love bikes
In 2009 we, Alex and Michael, founded mika amaro in Cologne. It was our goal to build beautiful and high-quality urban bikes with innovative solutions which would reflect our passion for cycling. Cycling means living for us. No other form of transport allows us to be in such contact with our environment. The wind in our face shows us that we fight and want to fight the elements in everyday life. Speed only bound by our own bodies intoxicates us and our bodies pulse with life when we use our muscles. We discover our cities and people on a bike. There’s sure to be a new encounter at the next traffic light. We’re not shielded, but right in the middle.
Bikes which function perfectly in any weather and every situation are just more fun and allow us to dive deeper into this world. We make exclusive use of components and materials that we would use ourselves and have convinced us. We want to cycle and not repair. And who doesn’t love to glide through a city on a beautiful bike?
We recognized very early that belt drives promote the joy of cycling. They are maintenance-free, quiet and durable. Rattling chains, dirty pant legs and hands are a thing of the past. We continue to work on new innovative solutions to improve our bikes.
