The 3-speed derailleur (patent pending).
For a long time we thought it would not work: Now we have realized a rear derailleur, with which three pinions (7, 8, and 9 teeth) can be shifted in the smallest space - the lightest derailleur in the world and virtually invisible. The sprocket geometry allows for a smooth switching change. Sprockets and chain are made of the best wear-resistant materials. The stainless steel Connex 8Sx is one of the most wear resistant chains on the market and only needs a few drops of oil.
The bottom bracket gearbox for the 6-speed-gearshift.
The 6-speed gearshift is realized with the Doppio bottom bracket gearbox from Kappstein. The large shift jump of the bottom bracket gearbox (1: 1.57) ensures that the derailleur can provide 3 upper and 3 lower gears. Details about Doppio can be found here: Doppio bottom bracket gearbox from Kappstein
The model EYRO from Busch and Müller combines a high-detail lumination of 30 lux with high compactness. EYRO is a very good quality front light. We mount the EYRO only 40 cm above the ground, in order to make the pavement structure (edges, bumps) clearly visible. The detection of bumps is therefore no problem even in the dark. The luminance is very good.
The Spanninga Nr. 9 with reflector and battery convinces with its retro look.
The rack is another highlight on the Kwiggle. We wanted to provide our customers with a solution for their existing Ortlieb bicycle bags without having to spend extra money on a separate luggage system. We have developed a rack that fits perfectly into the folding size, allows at least 10 kg load and weighs only 75 g.
All current Ortlieb rear-wheel or Ortlieb front-wheel bags fit on the luggage carrier.
