You can get there and back with efficiency and style with the classic-good looks of Manhattan’s Green 8. The Shimano 8-speed internally geared hub makes short work of hills no matter the weather. The lightweight aluminum frame makes for a comfortable, easy-to-pedal ride in an upright riding position. The fenders, chainguard and rear rack keep your clothes clean and make for easy transport of groceries, a day’s worth of clothes or anything else you care to take along with you. The strong linear-pull brakes offer the stopping power you need to safely and confidently cruise about town, loaded with gear or not. Try the Green 8 and experience a ride that makes the miles disappear with breezy ease..
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.
