Be One Bikes is calling PeteSpeed "a new way of cycling."
As with most of these G-Box thingies, it’s hard to tell what’s in the box without disassembling the drive train so the tech-heads will no doubt make a beeline to Be One’s booth at the Eurobike show in Friedrichshafen, Germany, 1st – 5th September.
Be One says it has patented the PeteSpeed drive and that it’s a winner because of its "simplicity and efficiency."
PeteSpeed "replaces the fragile rear derailleur."
Be One said the new drive train system also "protects against dirt, moisture and rain" making PeteSpeed "a great benefit for the consumer on trekking, touring and city bikes."
PeteSpeed is a "protected gearbox system integrated in the frame concept of the bike". As with other gearbox systems, it’s possible to change gear without pedalling.
Bas de Bever, Be One’s DH pro rider is now riding with the PeteSpeed system.
