BrakesMechanical Disc Brakes
Mechanical discs operate much the same way as hydraulic, but are actuated by a traditional cable. While they don't offer quite the same power, they are less expensive to purchase and maintain.
Roller Drum Brakes
These brakes are fully enclosed, simple, weather proof and reliable.
DrivetrainInternally 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.
Frame4130 Cromo Tubing
Chromoly steel frames can be much stronger than aluminum. This is particularly important for street bikes, which are abused and crashed regularly. Also, the properties of steel give it a nicer, more supple ride than aluminum or carbon.
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.
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.
Sloping Top Tube
A Brodie trademark, the sloping top tube gives more clearance in emergency situations.
