BrakesMechanical Disc BrakesMechanical 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.
CockpitLeather Grip/SaddleThe durability of leather far surpasses synthetic materials and will last longer for all those epic adventures.
DrivetrainReplaceable Chain RingsReplaceable chain rings allow you to replace individual rings rather than having to replace an entire crankset.Shimano FreehubHaving a brand name freehub body allows you to easily replace the mechanism that allows the wheel to turn with each pedal stroke. With non-branded freehubs, they're hard if not impossible to find resulting you to replace the entire hub or wheelset.Triple ChainringThree chainrings give you the largest gear spread to get you up those steepest hills.
ForkForward-Facing DropoutsSafety 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.
Frame4130 Cromo TubingChromoly 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.Butted TubingBy thinning the walls of the frame tubing, you achieve lighter weight and better ride quality.Full Rack and Fender MountsA full complement of specialized mounts allows for loading up your bike with all the necessary accessories for touring and commuting in comfort.S-bend SeatstaysBy 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 TubeA Brodie trademark, the sloping top tube gives more clearance in emergency situations.
Wheels29'er WheelsLightweight 29'er wheels give you a stronger wheel that stays true longer with fewer broken spokes.Double Wall RimsDouble wall rims are essentially stronger, giving you a longer lasting and straighter wheel.KORE SpokesKORE brings reliable, lightweight spokes for a stronger wheel that stays true longer, with fewer broken spokes.
