Melbourne, VIC

I ride a few times a week all season around 36km into the city and have found the Santos Travel Lite to be the ultimate commuter! It has a Rohloff hub with 14 internal gears and a Gates Belt Drive. I never have to do anything to this combination in terms of cleaning or maintenance. I just ride!

The Trekking Lite also has slightly wider tyres compared to a road bike and Magura rim brakes so that I can come to standstill in full control and within minimal distance.

Finally, the custom built racks allow me to take panniers which is really nice and safe compared to a backpack. It keeps the center of gravity very low and relaxes my back at the same time!
