Thanks to the wonders of social media, we’ve loved the ability to see how our Arise bikes get transformed by their owners to fit their daily needs, from commuting, doing a school run or even as a weekend CX toy. After we recognized the trend for conversion into a ‘daily driver’ for commuting and general running around town, we thought, why not take out some of the hard work? and our answer was the Arise Geared. Built around our proven work horse 4130 crmo frame, but kitted out with a Nexus 8-speed hub, a flat handlebar and fenders. Thanks to the front and rear rack mounts its one easy step to add panniers making the Arise geared a perfect daily companion.
Using the all-round geometry from Arise 2, which is equally appropriate for commuting thanks to more relaxed seat and head tube angles, toe clearance for fenders, short reach for a more upright riding position.
Post mount disc fork with Bombtrack’s unique investment casted crown design.
Singlespeed drive train with Shimano Nexus 8 speed internal geared hub for low maintenance riding.
Rack and fender mounts on both frame and fork.
Included and assembled with BT Bikes 50mm fenders.
