EXTRAS Eccentric BB
BrakesHydraulic Disc Brakes
Hydraulic brakes use fluid to move the brake pads, as opposed to cables pulling on levers. They offer consistent, powerful, clean and quiet braking.
CockpitWide Handle Bar
Extra width adds leverage for muscling up those climbs, and adds stability.
DrivetrainEccentric Bottom Bracket
By borrowing a little technology from tandems, we can use internally geared hubs with standard dropouts for user friendly wheel changes. The eccentric bottom bracket is also useful for tensioning the chain on single speeds, and avoids wheel slip.
Internally Geared Hub
By tucking all the gears INTO the hub, we eliminate the fragile drivetrain components that dangle from the frame. This makes for a durable, virtually maintenance free drivetrain. An added benefit is the ability to shift at a standstill, without pedalling.
ForkForward-Facing Dropouts
Safety first! Under braking conditions the wheel wants to rotate backwards, hence the forward-facing dropouts. The wheel is forced into the dropout, not out of it.
FrameBi-Ovalised Downtube
By carefully shaping the frame tubing we are able to increase the stiffness of the frame without adding weight.
Butted Tubing
By thinning the walls of the frame tubing, you achieve lighter weight and better ride quality.
Full Rack and Fender Mounts
A full complement of specialized mounts allows for loading up your bike with all the necessary accessories for touring and commuting in comfort.
S-bend Seatstays
By carefully bending the seatstays, we are able to increase the ride quality of the bike. The curvy stays take a little bit of the sting out of road and trail imperfections.
Semi Integrated Headset
This style of headset allows for better bearing separation and longer headtubes with a larger weld surface, without the drawbacks of tight tolerances and potential damage of fully integrated headsets.
Sloping Top Tube
A Brodie trademark, the sloping top tube gives more clearance in emergency situations.
WheelsAnti Pinch Flat Rims
Special rim profiles can greatly reduce the risk of flat tires. These rims have a flat top than protects the inner tube when the tire collapses under heavy load.
Description Finish your espresso; toss the laptop in your Chrome-bag.  Time to leave your flat and get across town to your presentation.  Grabbing a little disc brake, you downshift your internal 8-speed drive train as you slice along Main Street, ducking left onto the 10th Ave bicycle route as the wind whips by.  It's a great day to be on an Ocho amigo!
