Life in Australia presents cycling challenges with hills and spread out cities. The standard for bicycle design was set in Grandpa’s day. Little has changed since. Some electric power assistance is long overdue.
With a robust frame of aircraft aluminium, silky smooth hub gears, and best of all, FIVE LEVELS of BATTERY POWERED ASSISTANCE, Amsterdam flattens out hills and brings loved ones closer together.
Shimano Nexus 7 Drivetrain
Durable, Low Maintenance
In countries where bicycles are a primary mode of transportation, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark, hub gears have always been the default choice of drivetrain.
Hub gears have a number of benefits:
With the gears all protected inside the rear hub shell, hub gears require almost no maintenance.
They are much easier to keep properly adjusted, and you can shift gears while at a standstill.
That makes gear changing easy while stopped for a red light. The Shimano Nexus 7 is the best geared hub on the market.
7 speeds are perfect for just about any kind of city riding and the shifting is super smooth and so easy.
