Urban riding is more than simply getting from point A to point B. The truly seasoned Portland bike commuter knows that an efficient drivetrain, fenders, and hydraulic disc brakes are the ticket to efficiency, safety, comfort, and speed. The Dr Dew gets an updated frame, maximizing speed and comfort. Running on 650b wheels, weatherproofed by fenders, and powered by a SRAM NX/SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, the Dr Dew has everything a discerning rider could want in a bike.
This is one of our biggest-selling commuter bikes year after year. We like it for its single chainring, because no front deraileur means less maintenance, less weight, and no dropped chains. Plus, for 2020 the Dr. Dew comes with a 12-speed cassette vs last year's 11-speed. This is actually the first 1x12 bike we've received.
