The Muirwoods is at home in the concrete jungle, built for jumping curbs and cutting through a park on the way to the grocery store or class. This is the classic bike shop employee commuter bike — analogous to a steel mountain bike with slick tires — built for the everyday rider.
The Muirwoods RC is the ultimate mountain bike-based commuter with a Series 2 CrMo frame featuring new slider dropouts for chain tensioning, an internally geared 8-speed Shimano Nexus hub, and 650Bx47mm "Road Plus" tires that accelerate quickly and roll almost as fast as skinnier road tires while eating up potholes and curbs.
Hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, controlled stopping in all conditions with minimal maintenance.
