Classic European style meets modern functionality in Breezers Uptown 8. The light, nimble aluminum frame features an upright riding posture and swept-back handlebars, keeping every ride casual and fun. The 8-speed internally geared Shimano hub nearly eliminates maintenance, linear-pull brakes keep you firmly in control, and 26-inch wheels accelerate quickly and offer confident stability. The front dynamo hub powers the included front and rear lights as you ride, so you never need to worry about replacing batteries or forgetting your lights, while the standlight feature keep the lights on when you're stopped at traffic signals. Ensuring urban utility, the Uptown comes equipped with full fenders and chaincase to keep everything clean, a rear rack to carry your things, and frame lock for added security so that you’re ready to ride this beauty everywhere, year round, in any weather.
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.
