Short for Sydney Harbour Bridge, the SHB is a completely new model aimed at serious Commuters. Riser bars offer a more upright riding position – perfect for around town, where comfort and vision is key. The brakes and gears are also easily operated from the primary hand position which is great for stop/start traffic conditions.
With a Dynamo light set-up, a Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, the SHB has everything you need to get you safely from A to B all year round.
The drop bar, derailleur geared version, featuring Nitto bars and integrated Shimano 3500 STI brake/shift levers. Drop bars not only offer multiple hand positions, but allow the rider to get more aerodynamic when desired, which makes for a slightly more dynamic and faster ride.
The drivetrain uses a Sugino triple crankset paired with a Shimano XT rear derailleur. The cable operated brakes are our favourite – TRP Spyre. See the full specification on the Vivente Website.
The trekking bar version is aimed at Commuters and Touring cyclists. The versatile bars offer a more upright position, as well as providing multiple hand positions for longer rides. It’s perfect for around town, where vision is key, and the gears and brakes are easily operated from the primary hand hold position.
With a Dynamo light set-up, a Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, the Anatolia has everything you need to get you safely from A to B and beyond.
A virtually bombproof tourer, where simplicity and robustness are most desired. A Rohloff internally geared rear hub – engineered and made to perfection in Germany – is linked to a single chainring Sugino Mighty Comp crankset, giving the rider 14 gears over a large range. New for this model is an eccentric bottom bracket and a Hebie Chain Glider which completely covers the chain to keep you (and the chain) from getting grubby. Also features the same trekking bar and hydraulic disc brakes as the Anatolia.
