KHS’ Women's Green 8 rides even better than it looks. The smooth Reynolds steel step-through frame and chromoly fork deliver a fast, comfortable, and easily-maneuverable ride. You’ll steer clear of maintenance, too, as the no-fuss Shimano Nexus hub provides eight internal gears to tame any hills between you and your destination. If your journey gets wet, the matching fenders will keep you clean and dry, while the rear rack gives you room to carry additional supplies.
Internal hub gearing is a gearing system built into the rear wheel hub. It allows you to shift at any time, even when not pedaling, like at a stop sign. Because the majority of parts are housed within the hub, the gearing mechanism is protected from weather and grime, and therefore requires almost no maintenance. Plus, with less external parts than a derailleur system, you’ll get consistently smooth, reliable shifts.
