2011 Breezer Uptown Infinity with NuVinci N360

by Bike Shop Girl

Combining the proven ride-ability and reliability of the Uptown with the award-winning NuVinci N360 CVP transmission will make for an even better, fully-equipped commuter that is infinitely fun and infinity practical,” said Joe Breeze, president and founder of Breezer Bikes.

2011 Breezer Uptown Infinity

I’m glad that Breezer is once again taking steps forward before the bicycle industry with the NuVinci 360 CVP.  When the company changed hands I was worried that the brand that was, in my mind, an advanced American city or commuter bike would lose its touch or momentum.  Now they have introduced the 2011 Breezer Uptown with the newest internally geared system from NuVinci, the 360.

Details

MSRP : $1,269
Sizing : Available in standard and low-step versions.

What is the NuVinci 360 CVP?

NuVinci is the internally geared hub released a few years ago, NuVinci calls it a transmission, that utilizes “a set of rotating and tilting balls positioned between the input and output components of a transmission that tilt to vary the speed of the transmission.”

Compared to the NuVinci bicycle drivetrain launched in 2007, the NuVinci N360 model is now over 30% lighter, 17% smaller and has an increased 360% ratio range. Shift effort is significantly reduced even under high pedal forces and there is 50% less twist rotation required to move between the lowest and highest ratios.

    That’s a nice looking set up. And it looks like the Breezer is offering as a complete bike something very similar to what I’ve been trying to achieve piecemeal. Almost makes me wish I’d just waited for the Breezer, although building it up from parts has been a lot of fun. And I’ve been drooling over the new Nuvinci since I read the specs. I love my current version of the hub, and the new one looks to be an improvement in every way. Time to start saving my pennies.

    I ride a 2007 Breezer Citizen and I have long admired the company for the great urban commuting bikes they make. I am curious about what the reviewer of this new bike thought about the light system? Does this have the same dynamo system? As I understand it, after the 2007 models, they went to a slightly different system and I am curious if there are any problems with it….

    The Uptown 8 is 34 lbs. I wonder whether Breezer will shatter the elusive 35 lb barrier with this one…

    Been commuting on my Uptown 8 for 10 months and I love it! I TRUST my bike and wouldn’t trade it. (but), I did install a 16T rear cog when the bike was brand-new to get a little extra speed out of it and I am happy. I encourage you to grab this bike because the “8″ has 307% spread, whereas the new Nuvinci on this Breezer gives you 360%!!
    I wish I had it!
