Breezer Uptown 8 City Bike – 2012. The Breezer Uptown 8 is heavily influenced by the Europeans preferred choice of a bicycle as a mode of transportation. Heavy on utility and style, the Uptown 8 has everything you could possibly need for a coffee shop assault. It includes a headlight, taillight, rear cargo rack, full fenders, chain guard, framelock, bell and a kickstand. The bike even has a suspension seatpost to absorb gentle road vibrations. Normally, a bike that is inundated with accessories can be cumbersome due to the overall weight of the bike. Not the Uptown at only 30.3 pounds. That’s lighter than most mountain bikes today. The Uptown 8 is powered by your feet, of course, but it easily slips into smooth moving gears provided by a Shimano Nexus 8 rear hub and twist shifter. 8-speeds are perfect for most grades that you will encounter and lends a clean look to the Uptown 8 by removing the rear derailleur. Breezer chose doublewall rims for increased wheel longevity and added WTB Freedom Cruz tires with puncture protection and a reflective sidewall strip for visibility. Ergonomic dual-density grips and a comfort saddle take care of two of three crucial bike contact points with your body. The happier your body, the longer you’ll ride. Why wouldn’t we want that?
