Here is some propaganda from the Copenhagen-based firm’s website:
The Copenhagen is the first internationally available shaft-driven bicycle, and our unyielding passion for improvement continues to build upon its early success. With an elegantly finished frame, internally routed cables, and speed-oriented geometry, the Copenhagen combines a polished look with a lighthearted quickness and a comfortable ride. There may be no mode of transportation that’s so indulgent yet utilitarian, sensible yet stylish. What more could you ask for in a city bike?
