Enjoy the clean lines of a single-speed and the usability of a geared do-everything commuter bike with Globe's Roll 7. Its rugged chromoly frame and fork conquer short jaunts through the urban jungle or longer trips to work. You'll be riding comfortably thanks to the nicely swept-back bars with Roll grips and a supportive saddle. The Roll comes decked out with a super low-maintenance, 7-speed internal drivetrain, Specialized flat-resistant tires, and dual-pivot caliper brakes so you can cruise the strip or pedal hard on your way home. And, you can carry your gear along for the ride on the included front platform rack.
Internal hub gearing is a gearing system built into the rear wheel hub. It allows you to shift at any time, even when not pedaling, like at a stop sign. Because the majority of parts are housed within the hub, the gearing mechanism is protected from weather and grime, and therefore requires almost no maintenance. Plus, with less external parts than a derailleur system, you’ll get consistently smooth, reliable shifts.
