Breezer Uptown 8 Bicycle 2015 Model Low Step Breezer Uptowns have been awarded Bicycling Magazine's Editors' Choice for Best Commuter bike for an unprecedented four years in a row. The Uptown's aluminum frame is light and will never rust, and the 26"" wheels are strong, durable and perfectly suited for the stop-and-go nature of city riding.
The foundation of the Uptown 8 is a durable and lightweight 7005 aluminum frame, custom designed by Joe Breeze. The frame is designed to deliver smart handling and a lively ride with geometries that make for a comfortable and efficient ride over any distance. The Low Step Frame design on the Uptown 8 is easy to get on and off of, easy to ride, and is lots of fun for both men and women.
Your seating position will be upright which is great for around town and for seeing the sites. The upright riding position will also ensure that there is minimal stress on your upper body and the suspension seatpost will absorb the bumps on your ride. The wheels are 26"" in diameter, allowing for quick accelerations which is beneficial for frequent stops around town.
When riding the Uptown 8, you will discover that it is amazingly easy to shift gears with the Shimano Nexus 8-speed transmission which is neatly built into the rear hub. This means there are no external gears or a derailleur hanging down that would need routine maintenance on it. The shifting is quick and accurate, and most of all easy to do. All you do is twist the shifter one way for up, and the other way for down - and best of all, the shifter is built right into the grip!
On the front end of the bike, the silky smooth Shimano front hub dynamo powers both front and rear LED lights for years of trouble-free service. A clever Standlight feature keeps both lights on when you come to a stop. You no longer have to worry about replacing or charging a battery. The lights are bright and the taillight, which is built into the rack can be seen from both directly behind, as well as from the sides. For even more night-time safety, there are reflective sidewall tires for added visibility.
The Breezer Low Step Uptown 8 will provide you with years of smooth riding performance and enjoyment! Take it slow or ride like the wind, whichever you prefer, this bike will deliver.
