You may have noticed a flood of new product updates recently. Interbike, the bicycle industry’s largest trade show, is coming up at the end of September, so we’ll have lots of product news for you over the next month or so. We won’t be attending the show this year, but we’ll be reporting from afar as the news comes in from our sponsors and elsewhere.
Now, for the latest from Organic Bikes:
The Edwin town bike is the perfect combination of simplicity, style, and comfort. Built for a trip to the market, a stroll through downtown, or a commute to work — the Edwin will get you there with eco-style! With the NuVinci N360 drive train — there are no confusing shift levers to bother with — just turn the single grip control forward or back till the resistance feels right. The range of gearing is enough to tackle the big hills, or for a brisk ride through downtown. Standard on the Edwin town bike is the Farmers Market bamboo rear rack — big enough for two grocery bags and comes with holders for two cups of coffee!
The NuVinci N360 drivetrain is hot this year — we’ll be testing at least two commuters outfitted with this new infinitely variable transmission.
