    Our Carbon Drive G8 hits every target when it comes to low maintenance, high performance bikes. 


    The Gates Belt Drive is what truly makes our G8 special. Its inclusion ensures a quieter ride, as well as there being no real maintenance. 
    No need to change the chain, no grease to deal with; nothing. 
    On top of the improvements you’ll see in performance and comfort, our Carbon Drive G8 also offers vastly improved durability. 
    Gates’ belt drives will last at least twice as long as a chain drive, usually far longer than that – tying into the lack of maintenance required.
     Every ride with your G8 will be a dream, with you gliding effortlessly throughout the surroundings.
    Belt drive is the very latest technology to find its way onto bicycles. 
    Clean, quiet and very low maintenance, combined with an 8 speed Nexus hub gear and a Suntour anti-dive magnesium suspension fork this is a very light weight simple urban riding solution. 
    Continental puncture resistant tyres add an extra dimension of confidence and practicality.


    Key Features:


    • Frame: Alloy 7005 hand welded
    • Fork: Suntour Swing shock forks. With around 25 mm of travel these forks are designed to take the sting out of today’s rough roads. They are constructed of light magnesium alloy and the shock is simple and light too. They greatly enhance the ‘magic carpet style’ ride of the G8 carbon belt drive bike and complement the carbon belt superbly.
    • Geometry: Classic road geometry for everyday riding.
    • Gearing: Shimano Nexus standard 8 speed hub with a front to rear ratio of 2.29, internal hub gears give almost maintenance free riding with instant shifting and no worry of gears snagging.
    • Gear controls: Shimano Nexus twist control.
    • Drive: Gates carbon belt drive.
    • Brakes: Powerful light V style brakes.
    • Tyres: Continental Contact 37c tyres wide and comfortable for city riding.
    • Comfort: Soft grips and a deep padded saddle with a special soft surface.
    • Light, smooth, efficient and clean – take part in the belt drive bicycle revolution today!

    Roux G8

    The beautiful design is matched by the build and finish quality of the frame and decor. The Suntour SR Swing shock, Gates Carbon Drive belt and Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gears all help to make this bike a little bit special and sets you apart from the normal, almost boring, seemingly agricultural hybrids by comparison. However, these parts and general spec's are no gimmicks and compliment each other to perform extremely well, thus making the daily commute to work an enjoyable experience. In summary this bike looks fab, is fast and is great fun to ride. It is worth noting that it is not the lightest and it only has 8 gears so if you not particularly fit or perhaps don't like cycling uphill too much then perhaps a bike with more gears would be more appropriate. Personally, I'm really enjoying the simplicity and smoothness of the Nexus hub gears after riding a 27 geared Trek hard tail for the last 16yrs. The belt is simplicity itself and as promised is completely silent and the Swing shock system provides just enough travel to cushion you from just about the worst Swansea Roads have to offer.
