Use Breezer’s Downtwon 5 for short trips, errands, and casual rides. The steel frame has a comfortable, upright riding position and swept-back handlebars for taking in the sights and watching traffic, as well as a low step-through design for skirt-friendly riding. 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 takes a utilitarian approach to life, 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.
