Maintenance Free Bike with Fully Enclosed Drive Train 

Are you a dedicated bike commuter? Rain or shine? Summer and winter? Then you need a Flevobike Green Machine. And even if you are just the type that gets fed up with chain maintenance or oily pant legs, you should give the Green Machine serious consideration.

The Green Machine benefits from a completely enclosed drive train, which keeps out all moisture, sand, dirt and salt, for a trouble-free ride in all conditions. A 14-speed Rohloff hub ensures smooth shifting, even under load. To see what the guts of this bike look like, check out the ghost pic below.

The Green Machine has been making inroads with Europeans since its innovative design won the Eurobike Award 2007. But here is the best news: the Green Machine is now available in America, too. 

As the transparent view above demonstrates, Flevobike has designed the Green Machine with the chain inside of the bicycle frame. Because of the extremely tight engineering tolerances demanded, the Green Machine is available in three frame sizes, to fit cyclists from 150 to 205 cm (5 feet to 6 feet, 10 inches) tall.

Green Machine with Touring Trailer

All two wheeled trailers are compatible with the Flevobike Green Machine, attaching via an M10 threaded joint in the bike's rear hub. The state of the art 3D CAD/CAM design and all aluminum frame weigh in at 16.2 kg (35.6 pounds). The anodized highlights in red, purple, blue, orange or green will be the envy of your friends.
