The Commuter 8.0 offers the same stylish design language as the Urban 8.0, but includes those normally unsexy things like lights, racks, and mud guards, so essential for a commuting bike. The frame for the 8.0 is made from a light and durable aluminum that will ensure this baby will be able to withstand the various levels of terrible that normal city road surfaces rate, while not rattling you into the shakes on your way to work. You’ll be getting the Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal gear rear hub to take care of the shifting, but it also comes with the SON deluxe SL Hub Dynamo in the front wheel, which will connect to the head lamp using internally routed cables in the specially designed Canyon F24 - One One Four SL Disc fork that has dynamo contacts located in the dropouts. It means that you will never have to worry about a battery for your head or rear lights, but it will be powered as you pedal. The Canyon H29 Cockpit integrated bar and stem offers a perfect mounting point for the front Supernova E3 Pure light, while the Supernova E3 Rear Light has been integrated into the rear mudguards, and is also bright enough to be road legal even in very strict Germany. Instead of a conventional chain the Commuter 8.0 uses the Gates belt drive system, which offers a more durable, practically maintenance-free drivetrain. Recognizing that there are folks out there intent on nicking nice bits off bikes, the wheels, saddle and seatpost have been secured with Hexlox Anti-Theft measures to prevent anyone stealing them. If you’re looking to buy the perfect commuter you can enjoy riding, then the Commuter 8.0 will definitely get you where you need to go.

BIKE CLASSIFICATION: Bikes of category 2 are suitable for well-maintained hard-surface roads where the wheels remain in permanent contact to the ground. These bikes are designed for urban mobility and thus mainly for participation in road traffic and use on public and permitted lanes. This category comprises urban, city and trekking bikes. The permissible maximum overall weight comprising rider, luggage and bicycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certain circumstances this permissible maximum weight can be further limited by the component manufacturers’ recommendations for use.
