belt driven bikes
Authorized dealer of Schindelhauer Bikes.
The Urban Bike is founded by 3 friends who met through their passion, which is photography. They are not only passionate photographers, but also avid cyclists. Some people would say photography and cycling comes hand-in-hand. What do you think?
Anyway, meet Tiffany, Lem and EC, the people behind The Urban Bike. The company was started as a result of their interest in cycling to work whenever possible. Well, it’s an effort to help save the earth right. So anyway, had enough of battling the crowds on public transport or sitting in traffic burning heaps of increasingly expensive fossils? Why not consider biking to where you need to be? Riding your bike to work, or wherever you need to be is cheap and quick, be it occasionally or all the time. Plus, it helps keep you fit too!
What is so different about the bikes we carry? As said, the bikes we sell are all belt driven. They are chic, stylish and most importantly pretty lightweight for a bike!
Why a Belt-Driven Bike?
Belt drives are not really new technology. They are quite common in most of continental Europe and well suited to bike for commuting as they arecleaner, rust free, almost maintenance free and last longer than metal chains. It requires no lube ever, will get about 10,000 miles of use, is super silent and ridiculously light weight. We can definitely say that it will last almost as long as the frame itself.
