The 2020 Journey has been upgraded! The Nexus7 internally geared hub has been upgraded to the Nexus8 and the rim brakes have been upgraded to disc brakes. Colors on the new bikes will be Red Raspberry, Turquoise, and Metallic Black.
We have also added a new, smaller 13″ seat called the Sport Seat; and the Contour Seat, which has been our popular 16″ cushion for over a decade, has been upgraded to dual density memory foam.
The easy shifting, internally geared Nexus8 from Shimano is low maintenance, eliminates multiple chain rings and the derailleur, and allows you to shift when stopped or on the move. As always, the Journey has Day 6’s trademark comfort and ergonomics which make riding a bicycle so much fun.
