Another Urban Bike - Swobo Dixon

The Dixon builds on the simple and functional Otis platform, with the addition of 6 more gears and a rear disc brake. Just like the Otis, the shifting is intuitive and easy with the elegant twist-shifter. If you have steep hills to climb, the additional gears will make it easy.

We jumped at the chance to be the first kids on the block to get the all-new SRAM I-Motion 9. The first 9-speed internal gear hub on the market, it shifts precisely over a wide gear range, under load or standing. The benefits of internal hubs are mostly hidden, which masks the beauty, simplicity and zero-maintenance of not having two derailleurs; and multiple chainrings, cogs and shift-levers.

The Swobo purpose-designed alloy frame and fork are light and tough and are designed to withstand urban abuse. Threaded eyelets on the forged dropouts and on the square-section chainstay and seatstay bridges accept racks and fenders. We designed the frames for a discrete fit of the rear disc, to accommodate rack and fender stays.

Front and rear Avid mechanical disc brakes, custom Swobo saddle, grips, seat collars, and machined alloy handlebar end caps; seat post with integrated tail light and puncture-resistant street tires complete the spec. Rear rack and Planet Bike fenders are options available with the bike, and are shown here. We let you decide. We make 5 sizes to fit most people.
