A perfect commuter! The Gr8 was always intended to be a city bicycle. The Gr8’s frame is more compact than the Fr8 and tuned for riding with a light or no load. With it’s shorter frame, smaller tires, thinner tubing, fenders, rear carrier and several other parts it's much lighter than the Fr8 without sacrificing stiffness or strength. When designing the Gr8 our focus shifted to reducing the volume as much as possible while still remaining a full-sized Dutch bike to fit a broad range of riders. The mounting points for the front and rear carriers are the same on both Fr8 and Gr8. Bags, crates, baskets, add whatever you like to make your Gr8 complete.
