Breezer’s Dowtown 5 is the perfect accessory at the office, grocery store, or when you’re meeting friends for dinner. The steel frame’s upright posture and swept-back handlebars keep you comfortable as you take in the sights. 700c wheels cover ground quickly and easily and sport wide, commuter-ready Vera tires. The 5-speed Shimano Nexus drivetrain is contained within the rear hub for minimal maintenance and a clean look. The Downtown 5 is as utilitarian as it is good-looking, providing you with full fenders, a rear rack, chainguard, and even a bell, so you’re ready for whatever the day brings.
Internal hub gearing is a gearing system built into the rear wheel hub. It allows you to shift at any time, even when not pedaling, like at a stop sign. Because the majority of parts are housed within the hub, the gearing mechanism is protected from weather and grime, and therefore requires almost no maintenance. Plus, with less external parts than a derailleur system, you’ll get consistently smooth, reliable shifts.
