Barel Cycles city bikes
Barel Cycles brand focuses on designing and producing city bikes for both ladies and gentlemen.
What makes Barel Cycles special is the use of gear hub opposed to classic derailleur gears. The main advantage of the gear hub is its high resistance against dirt and mud because the gear is capsulized in an internal hub. By using wider chain (1/2″ x 1/8″) we also achieve its longer lifetime period.
We may provide you with 2, 3 and 5-speed hub versions.
Bikes are equipped with either automatic 2-speed gear hub Automatix from US company SRAM or 2-speed gear hub Duomatic Kick Shift S2C from British company Sturmey-Archer.
This gear works on centrifugal force principle. There is no shifter, the shift is made automatically when speed is about 17 – 18 km/h.
