Urban Commuter R8 Gents
FRAME SIZES AVAILABLE: 15" only
This bike was designed for commuters. Sure it will also make a great bike for bik paths and the regulat jaunt down to the local shops, but the idea was a bike to ride to work.
The internal 8 speed gear system is ideal, and the ratios have sufficient spread to make riding around most of Melbourne a breeze. Internal hub gers have several advatages
- Hub gears are cleaner, the whole system is enclosed
- Hub gears are less trouble, they require virtually no maintenance for most riders.
- Simple to operate, you can change gears even when stationary.
- The bike looks neter and cleaner.
As to comfort, the bike is fitted with a deep, plush saddle, and as if that is not enough, it sits on an adjustable seat pillar with inbuilt suspension. Yes it can be adjusted to suit your weight and riding preferences.
The handlebar arrangement compliments the plush saddle. The handlebars not only sweep back for a very relaxed riding position, but they can also be raised or lowered, to ensure optimum comfort.
If this bike sounds suitable, why not come and test ride one, so that you can see for yourself. Oh....a nd by the wat, the frame has a 10 year guarantee, with 2 years on the parts.
