Description of GT MEATBALL 2 Gear Automatix Urban Bike 2015
If it has no gears or brake cables, it must be a fixie, right? Wrong.
Devoid of anything that gets in the way of your riding, the Meatball hides all the good stuff in the rear hub. With two speeds and a coaster brake hidden from plain sight, you get the clean look of a fixed gear with all the awesome features of a city bike.
"Logic and simplicity. Same cool fixie look with a simple frame and flat, olive green paint, but with the addition of two gears, a brake, no cables and no thinking — so you can fit in yet go faster. The rear hub, using the centrifugal clutch of the SRAM Automatix 2-speed hub, reads your speed and shifts automatically into the higher gear when you hit about 10 mph. The big gear allows for a fast cruising speed. To manually downshift for hill climbing, just coast momentarily; it'll downshift. The auto-shift quickly becomes second nature."
- Roy M. Wallack, L.A. Times -
The bike comes with unmounted front brake and an additional chain guard, which can be removed without any problems.
So, nobody has to move 1.5 tons of steel pointless for its 80 kg meat! The GT Meatball helps!
