Gazelle Avenue C8

The Avenue follows in the footsteps of the wildly popular upright low step Arroyo - with an even more spacious low entry due of the 26" wheels and lighter because of its unique frame design.

  • Great Range 45-80 mile, 504 watt hour battery
  • Smooth, powerful & quiet the Shimano Steps City drive is more compact and stealthy than Bosch Active line. 
  • Easy entry super Low Step available in sizes 45cm, 51cm, & 57cm
  • Speedy handlebar position changes - a simple release lever changes from very upright to more sporty.
  • Very Comfortable spring monoshock fork & seatpost, with a wide cushioned saddle to soak up rough city streets.
  • Commute ready - powerful front and rear lights, fenders, chainguard, bell, an integrated frame lock, and a rear rack for panniers. It even has a guard on the rear wheel for wearing a long coat or dress.
  • No greasy chain mess - internal gears 8-speed Shimano and a fully enclosed chain guard to keep pant legs clean.
  • Low maintenance, powerful brakes -  hydraulic rim brakes  for reassuring stopping power, wet or dry.

Finally a light upright cruiser!
One of the most noticeable features of the Avenue is the frame - it has cutouts for routing cables internally and reinforced gussets for added rigidity to reduce frame flex that can be a challenge on low step frames.  The cutouts really help our mechanics service the bike - normally internal cable routing is a real pain to change cables. 

This super comfortable Shimano Steps powered low entry cruiser is ideal for day-to-day trips as well as longer rides, and chock full of well thought out details and extras that you will appreciate for years to come - like the easily adjusted stem to suit your mood or different sized riders in a snap, or the integrated frame lock for quicky lockups at the coffee place. 

The Avenue uses the E6010 display panel is larger than the original - it uses a transflective LCD that is readable in direct sunlight and an easy on/off switch. A gripe about the old steps system was the display wouldn’t power up until you pressed a button on the battery pack first.
