Breezer Beltway Wins Best Commuter Bike Award from Bicycling Magazine

2013 BREEZER_Beltway_Infinity

The Beltway Infinity from Breezer featuring Gates Carbon Drive has won Bicycling Magazine’s prestigious Editors’ Choice award for best commuter bike of 2013. The Beltway Infinity is a fully equipped car-replacing transportation bike that features all the necessary components–racks, fenders, lights, bell, disc brakes, belt drive and Nuvinci internal hub gearing for low-maintenance all-weather cycling.


Breezer founder Joe Breeze is one of the great figures in American cycling, the guy who helped create the first mountain bikes–and who also jump-started the North American bike industry’s efforts to produce functional and practical commuter bikes. Anyone looking for a bike for urban transport, commuting or errands should check out the Beltway.

The Beltway Infinity’s win marks the second straight year that a bike with Carbon Drive has won the best commuter bike award from Bicycling, following last year’s choice of the Trek Soho Deluxe. For commuting, having a clean, smooth and easy belt is the way to go.

Congratulations to Breezer and Joe Breeze.
