Vivente Swabia Details
The Swabia offers you all the signature benefits of chromoly steel (smooth, comfortable, durable) but with an important upgrade: a Rohloff hub and Gates carbon belt drive.
The low-maintenance internal gears and belt drive mean you don't have to worry about derailleurs or derailleur hangers getting knocked in transit. You also never need worry about chain lube, chain stretch or dirty chains.
What's more, you get an incredible list of included extras: mud guards, built-in dynamo lights (no need to worry about charging or batteries), a kickstand, touring pedals, mirror, Tubus rear rack, and more.
Because Vivente also understands that not everyone has legs a mile long, the smaller frames also come with a choice of a standard or dropped top-tube. Thanks, Vivente!
