Our long running dedication to all things Shimano is based on several things.
First and foremost is the breadth of their product range, no other manufacturer offers such good quality internal gear hubs AND external cassette and derailleur systems. Add the Steps electric systems to this arsenal and you have pretty much covered the bases in terms of what a modern cargo bike ccompany needs to be able to offer it’s customers.
Shimano quality is unrivalled and it is great that their warranty policy is so comprehensive and supportive too. The support we receive as a manufacture extends through the family to distributors and dealers and ultimately to the most important person, the end Bullitt owner and rider.
On a personally level, we really like the crisp and precise gear shifting Shimano offers. It works beautifully and does so for a really long time, so absolutely no complaints about longevity or durability. This is not purely hearsay or feedback either, it is through personal experience and grinding umpteen km’s throughout the year in sunshine, rain and snow. If adjusted, serviced and treated correctly Shimano parts last longer than their competition, period.
