Breezer Downtown 8 Hybrid Bike 2016 Model The Downtown is Breezer's classic chromoly steel town bike: 700C wheels, fully equipped with matching fenders and chainguard, and available in eight different sizes. With Joe's advanced town bike geometry, Downtowns are easy to ride, simple to operate, and ready to go whenever you are.
Designed for great performance, ergonomic efficiency and exceptional handling, the Downtown 8 will deliver supreme comfort and style. The foundation of the Breezer Downtown 8 is a classic Hi-Ten Steel frame with the Breezer ""Breeze-In"" Dropouts. The ""dropout"" part of the frame is where your rear wheel's axle attaches to the frame. Joe Breeze's iconic Breeze-In drop out offers twice the rigidity and half the weight of standard dropouts. Breeze-Ins enable the stays to extend as close as possible to the rear axle and improves everything from the ride, to shifting and wheel changes. Steel frames are a favorite for many cyclists because of the materials ability to absorb vibration, making it a soft, comfortable ride.
The drivetrain is an Internal Nexus 8-speed hub for an expanded gear range for tackling both the hills and flats with easy to use twist shifrer that provides reliable performance and very low maintenance. Equipped with mountain bike brakes, the Downtown 8 offers the security of sure-stopping power when you are ready to slow down the smooth rolling 700c wheels. Rounded out with fenders, a chaninguard and a rear carrier rack, the Downtown 8 will take you anywhere you want to go.
