Kalkhoff Endeavour 8 2018 Women's

Shimano 8-speed hub gears, Gates beltdrive, dynohub integrated lights, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes: this is one über practical fully-equipped women's Euro bike.

Why this bike is great

Gates Belt Drive
The advantages of a belt drive transmission are compelling. The carbon fibre-reinforced rubber belt lasts around twice as long as a steel chain, it's much lighter, it won't stretch and will never rust so you will never need to lube it. The absence of oil means the belt doesn't attract dirt the way that even a well-maintained steel chain might.

Gates (who have been based in Colorado for over 100 years and who also manufacture in Dumfries, Scotland) are the world leaders in timing belts for cars. They worked in close collaboration with Wayne Lumpkin (founder of Avid brakes) in the development of their Belt Drive system. You can be confident that this technology has been precision tested.

Being manufactured by the same company, you can be confident that the tooth profile of Gates' Carbondrive chainset and rear cog will mesh perfectly with the Gates belt for optimal drivetrain efficiency.

Shimano 8-Speed Hub Gears
A Belt Drive transmission can't be derailled. If you are looking for a multi-geared belt drive bike you need a hub gear transmission. Here, Kalkhoff spec the tried and tested Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub, then upgrade the transmission with a Shimano Alfine Rapidfire trigger shifter.

More good things

  • With its suspension fork, a Kalkhoff Endeavour is a trekking/hybrid bike that's equally at home on smooth tarmac or unpaved towpaths
  • Quality hydraulic disc brakes - why you want them
  • Rolls on durable, puncture resistant Schwalbe 700x35 tyres, which are equally capable on smooth roads and rough tracks
  • Fitted with full mudguards, pannier rack, chainguard and kickstand to make the bike super practical for everyday riding
  • The front dynamo hub powers the high quality front and rear LED lights, so no light batteries to replace or recharge on this bike, ever
  • The rear light has a stand light feature so it stays on when you stop at the traffic lights.

Been riding this around the hills of EdinburghReview by Eli

Picked up one of there just before Christmas and been on it daily ever since. It was a bit of a change from a road bike but the lack of constant cleaning and maintenance is a real plus.
A really well made bike, proper all weather and accessorised to boot.
My only dislike is the rack, it's too thin making the top unusable. I like to have the option of strapping stuff to the top. (Posted on 21/02/2018)

Product Questions

Can I use the same formula for calculating gear ratios for the Gates drive as with chain drive? If yes, is it possible to lower the gear range on the Gates drive with a larger rear sprocket without subjecting the Nexus hub to unreasonable torque?
