2010 Breezer Uptown EX

The Breezer is my primary commuter. I won it in a contest from the good people at PeopleForBikes. Originally spec’d with a basic 1×7 drivetrain which is likely more than adequate for a large number of commuters. I desired something a little more in my bicycle though, so the original drivetrain didn’t last long.

This bicycle has seen many different parts, including a full drum brake setup with an 8 speed Sturmey Archer IGH. I was not a fan of the 8 speed IGH from Sturmey Archer. It is back to a derailleur setup.
