    For a commuter bike, I’m a little bit surprised at how road-oriented that cassette is. If you live in a flat city 9 speeds spread between 12-25 is fine, but I’m definitely glad of the 11-32 spread on my Jamis Coda Sport. I’m not sure if the average commuter is ultimately concerned about maintaining the exact right cadence, so that gear spacing is probably overkill…

    Hi Andrew,

    You may be aware of this already, but the Hyland comes in a few different configurations. This is the “road” oriented version, hence the close ratio cassette.

    I will NEVER buy another bike with a conventional drivetrain. I have riden a fixie with a flip-flop hub for the past 10 years, and I am anxious to convert my Davidson sport touring bike to an internal hub.
    I want reliability…low maintenance..the ability to shift gears while stopped mid-climb…and I have never really like derailleurs.
    I’m surprised Civia opted for a conventional drivetrain rather than either a SRAM 9 speed or Shimano Alfine 8.
    It’s also SO MUCH NICER in the rain when you have fenders and a chain stay noticeably drier..and it rains a lot in Tacoma!

    Civia already offers the Hyland in iMotion, Alfine, and Rohloff builds:

    This is just another iteration to add to the list for those who prefer a conventional drivetrain and drops.

  • bob says:

    I see why they opted for the conventional drivetrain– I know we all like internally geared hubs here, but derailleurs can be really nice too. But why drop the generator hub? That was one of the nice things about the Hyland…

  • dave marquez says:

    Now if Civia would just build my dream bike: sloping top tube, hydraulic disks f+r, fenders, generator hub, alfine or sram 9, belt drive (enclosed preferrably) and good lights!!!

  • Rick Steele says:

    I think this is an excellent move by Civia to bring out a compact drive wider ratio derailleur version of the Hyland model at a more affordable price. Note that this model has the CF fork of the upper tier Alfine and Rohloff hub geared models.
