Riding Discipline – City

English Cycles

This is the Nuvinci Cruiser. The combination of the continuously variable Nuvinci hub and the Gates belt drive makes for a wonderfully smooth and quiet city ride. Disc brakes provide low maintenance, predictable all-weather braking, and the wooden fenders are practical whilst adding a really nice aesthetic to the bike. The goal with the frame was to cleanly integrate the cable routing whilst providing a comfortable, stable ride. The twin toptubes that run all the way to the dropouts allow for internal cable runs and give nice lines to the look of the bike. The bottom bracket is offset slightly forwards to make it easy to get a foot to the ground when stopped. There is plenty of clearance for the large volume 29″ tires, which will handle any beaten up city streets with ease. Adjustable dropouts allow for belt tensioning. The fork has a twin tube design to provide clearance for the fender and tire, as well as softening the ride. The one piece stem/steerer provides a clean look and allows the front brake cable to run completely internally from the stem to the caliper. The bike is all steel and fillet brazed, and finished with a powder coat (including matching spokes!) for durability. Yes it has a lot of nice features, but what really makes it special is that it was built for my wife!
