Internally-geared Hubs

Experienced commuters have a secret for trouble-free riding day after day: Internal-gear hubs! Out of sight and out of mind, Internal-Gear (IG) hubs offer you a wide range of gears for tackling hilly terrain like a derailleur, but offer many benefits for city riders like ease of maintenance and the ability to shift while at a stop. And because all of the moving parts are concealed there’s minimal chance of anything getting damaged in the case of your bike getting banged up at the bike rack. Just get on and go!

Breeze-In Dropouts

BREEZE-IN DROPOUTS: Joe Breeze’s iconic Breeze-In dropouts offer twice the rigidity and half the weight of standard dropouts; after almost three decades they are still used by custom frame builders to this day. The hooded shape was a breakthrough in design that allowed two major advantages over traditional cast or forged dropouts. First was a much stronger connection between the chainstay & seatstay tubes to the dropout and the second was the ability to save weight by using less material for the forging. Breeze-Ins also enable the tubing length to extend as close as possible to the rear axle and avoid using heavy and stiff CNC yokes or mounting plates keeping the tubing the star of the show and the ride quality as high as possible. Now made for both quick-release and thru-axle applications, Breeze-In dropouts improve shifting, wheel changes, and of course, ride quality.
