Incredibly quiet and easy to ride and maintain. This bike has a belt-driven, continuously variable NuVinci rear hub. The motor is in the middle and provides plenty of torque. The twist-grip gear ratio adjustment is smooth and intuitive. This is a great bike that has lots of special advantages.
We are 100% Organic Tree Huggers. Our inspiration comes variously from the book "Ismael" by Daniel Quinn teaching that we are a part not the center of life on the planet. Also, Chief Seattle and Leonardo da Vinci's concept that Everything Is Connected and of course, Carl Sagans' observation of our small planet earth as the Pale Blue Dot.
