From weekday commute to weekend adventure
The Via Veneto is a versatile, low-maintenance ride that’s just as comfortable exploring country roads on a week-long tour as it is helping you navigate the morning rush on your way to work. With a steel frame that features comfortable, natural geometry and an integrated rear rack capable of receiving up to 88 pounds, the Via Veneto is ready to take on the long haul.
700c wheels paired with 35mm rubber provide a fast-rolling ride that’s still plush and stable on rougher roads or light gravel paths, and integrated features such as front and rear lights powered by a Schmidt Dynamo hub and fenders by SKS make for a city-smart bike that shines in the urban environment.
Rohloff‘s SPEEDHUB 500/14 internal gear hub provides 14 speeds of evenly-indexed, wide-range gearing, and it’s paired with a Gates Carbon Drive belt for the ultimate in all-weather reliability and lack of maintenance. The Rohloff hub will shift whether you are pedaling or stationary, allowing you to shift through multiple gears at once, even when delayed at a stoplight. What’s more, the belt requires no lubrication and doesn’t attract grease, meaning you can say goodbye to pesky stains on your favorite pair of pants. All-weather disc brakes provide ample stopping power even when the bike is loaded, and Shimano’s touring-length brake levers allow for a natural feel when paired with the Rohloff grip shifter.
If you’re looking for one bike that can conquer your workweek commute one day and cruise through your favorite weekend route the next, look no further than the Via Veneto.
