Search no further than the Traitor Ruben Drop Bar Bike, the latest and greatest in the series of Pacific Northwest style commuter vehicles from Traitor that doesn't sacrifice an ounce on speed. Thanks to a steel frame and fork the road will feel forgiving whether you're riding for work or pleasure, while the Ruben's Shimano Sora drive train lends you all the power you need to muscle up the PNW's ambitious hills. Don't need all those gears? No problem. Traitor s new swinging dropout system allows you to switch between a geared or singlespeed setup with complete and total ease.
