It is a fact that quality and good functionality should not be skimped, even at entry level. To this end, we use V-brakes on all of our city bikes. These are rim brakes with brake arms that are considerably longer than on cantilever brakes, which were previously used. V-brakes have now become part of the standard equipment. The benefit is apparent: The longer lever arms means its efficiency is simply boosted. Once a year, you should bring your city bike to your specialist retailer for a routine check-up. Here they can check the brake linings that are susceptible to wear due to the high efficiency of the brakes and the brake cables, and change the rims where necessary if these have exceeded the wear limit.
It is a similar case with the tyres. VICTORIA uses high quality tyres with puncture protection on all of its city bikes. In the case of both of its Classic top models, it is the Road Cruiser by Schwalbe for example, with its green rubber compound produced from sustainably grown and recycled materials that is used and thus making its own contribution in terms of sustainability.
