Ready For Adventure
Brooklyn Bicycle Co. – The Shimano Acera drivetrain shifts smoothly and precisely with light action, and includes a large tensioner and guide pulleys to reduce noise and wear. The components are as reliable as any Shimano products we’ve tested, and the 3×8 gearing offers a wide range of options for any slope, condition or load. Cantilever Brakes ensure powerful braking in rougher conditions and allow for other options of wheel and tires. The Urban Flat Bar is excellent for use with a backpack, but you can just as easily load up the Roebling with your favorite front and rear racks. Fenders can also be installed for commuters in wetter regions.
This bike is ready for adventure out of the box, but it can easily accommodate any upgrades you might want to incorporate for your various travels. With a quality matte black finish, this frame holds up to dirt and looks pretty sharp. With an affordable price, the Roebling is perfect for anyone commuting over tough roads, thinking about getting into bike touring or looking for a simple weekend adventure. Brooklyn Bicycle Company offers a lifetime warranty on all frames; meaning that with proper care, the Roebling can last decades. -VP ($499, brooklynbicycleco.com)
