When you want to be sure that the bike you are buying has tried to think of everything you may need on your commute to work, then the first place to look is at the extras. Sure, any beater bike is going to have a frame, fork, and wheels. But what the Commuter 5.0 offers in addition to these essentials will make you wonder how you ever lived without them. Perhaps most important for a commuter is to be sure you will be visible at all times. For that reason, the Commuter 5.0 uses a front hub KT Hub Dynamo to connect through internal wiring to the Supernova E3 Pure light front lamp and the Supernova E3 rear lamp, both of which have been cleverly integrated into the mud guards. The Tubus Wingee mudguards and the Tubus Wingee for Ortlieb Sportroller luggage racks form the backbone of this bike’s practicality, while the Shimano Nexus SL C6000 Revo 8-speed shifters and the Nexus SG-C6001 8-Speed internal hub in the rear will give you the sort of easy gear changes that will help you get through rush hour traffic without a hitch. Then the Gates CDN belt drive system, which offers a more durable, practically maintenance-free drivetrain, will help power the bike without risking greasing up your trouser leg. The sturdy DT Swiss X453D rims are wrapped by the puncture resistant and supple 35mm Schwalbe G-ONE ALLROUND tires to provide a certain cushioning to your ride to work. Whether you are rolling into work, or taking the bike to the pub on a Saturday evening, the Commuter 5.0 will be sure to be able to get you through tight spots and dark sections of road.
