Classic European style meets modern functionality in Breezer's Uptown 8. This light, nimble aluminum bike provides an upright riding posture and swept-back handlebars, keeping every ride casual and fun. The 8-speed internally geared Shimano drivetrain makes easy work of the climbs, linear-pull brakes keep you firmly in control, and 26-inch wheels accelerate quickly, while offering 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. Plus, the standlight feature keeps the lights on when you're stopped at traffic signals. For urban utility, the Uptown comes with full fenders and chainguard to keep everything clean, a handy rack and a 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.
