Breezer's Uptown 5 combines clean lines, simplicity and around-town versatility in the same package. The light, nimble aluminum frame is equipped with a host of commuter-ready parts that will make your daily rides even better. An upright riding posture and swept-back handlebars keep every ride casual and fun, while the 5-speed internally geared Shimano hub nearly eliminates maintenance. 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. And, the standlight feature keeps the lights on while you're waiting at traffic lights. With the suspension seatpost, plush seat, chainguard, rear rack, and full fenders, you'll 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.
