Today’s highlighted product is Breezer Venturi Steel Road Bike 2012, one of the most popular items from the Road Bikes category brought to you by Breezer. This product is currently on sale! You save $1180! We give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
The Breezer Venturi offers the classic steel road bike feel, but updated with modern touches at a fraction of the cost of what modern custom steel bikes would cost. The first of its kind hydroformed steel tubing produces stiff steel tubes that make up the core of the Venturi steel frame. Breezer chose a wider BB86 bottom bracket in order to have more room to attach bigger drive side chainstay for rear end stiffness. To compensate for the stiffer rear end, the thin and slightly curved chainstays inject some vertical compliance so that the Breezer Venturi road bike is stiff without beating the rider up.
Shimano Ultegra dominates the Breezer Venturi’s spec sheet. Normally, manufacturers inject Shimano Ultegra components in the drivetrain and then save money on brakes and wheels. Breezer chose to load up the Venturi with a full Shimano Ultegra group and even include the Shimano Ultegra Road Tubeless ready wheels! The Shimano Ultegra road tubeless wheels can be used as a pure tubeless set-up or with traditional clincher tires and tubes. The rest of the Shimano Ultegra road group is as flawless as it’s beautiful to look at. The Shimano Ultegra compact 34/50 cranks mated to the 11-28 rear 10 speed cassette will never leave the rider in the wrong gear.
For many riders, it’s easy to forget that 35 years ago in Joe Breezers early day, he was a successful road racer. The Breezer Venturi takes a nostalgic look back, and yet blazes a path into the future with cutting edge features! Buy it if you want to experience steel’s magical ride without sacrificing modern technology – Bicycling Magazine Aug. 2012
