    Just wanted to bump this and give a little update. Peter White cycles did re-build my wheel around my existing 36 hole, 8-speed internal hub. It seems very sturdy and I haven't had any spoke...

    Yes, he's in Vermont. I ended up shipping my internal 8-speed hub to him and he built my wheel around it. Please see his website below;

    I purchased a handlebar-based one with my first adult bike. I was going to be commuting to work along rural roads at ~5 AM, so safety was very important to me. I used the mirror and a bright red...

    ~340 here. I ride a Breezer Uptown 8. Despite its' standard 36 spoke wheel, I would still break spokes about once every other month. I've since had the rear wheel re-built by a professional wheel...

    I have their Transit Jacket (with hood), Rain Booties, and a pair of rain legs. I just pack them all in my trunk bag in case it looks like it's gonna rain.

    I appreciate everyone's opinions. I was considering doing this as a DIY, but I ended up taking nfmisso's advice earlier and sent the wheel off to a professional wheelbuilder (Peter White). I had to...

    Thanks for the reply Bill, I've sent him a PM

    There are 2 types of butted spokes the bike shop had available, neither of which would have helped;

  10. 2nd opinion needed - Possible to stop spoke breakage without a new bike

    Hi all,

    I've owned a Breezer Uptown 8 for about 10 months now. It has an internal, 8-speed rear hub which is very heavy. Both wheels are 36 spokes, and I weigh about 340 lbs + the weight of...

    x2 on the backpack getting sweaty. It will work, but it won't be that comfortable. I would look into putting a cargo rack on the back. They shouldn't be too expensive. Then, you can tie stuff to it,...

    I vote for Dutch-style city bikes. I've been using a Breezer Uptown 8 for the past few months, and love it. Small but essential features, like fenders, rear rack with cargo clasp, internal gear/dyno...

    1) I second that!

    3) I personally would dismount and walk at the crosswalk. Walking is generally safer, as you're going at a slower speed and have no stopping distance whatsoever. Also, it has...

    I'm somewhere between prospective and car-lite.

    I tried biking to work a few times at 17 - 18. I was amazed at how easy it was to cover distances by bike, even in the rural towns I grew up in. I...

    Still, I think the separated,...
