So we decided to review this K2 Easy Roller Coasting Bike because it looks like a breeze to ride. Cruising on two wheels just took on a whole new level of comfort and confidence in the K2 Easy Roller Coasting Bike Roller with its innovative Shimano coasting technology which provides intelligent, automatic shifting without shift levers. How does it work? An electronic ''brain'' monitors riding speed and automatically shifts to the appropriate gear. Then the Shimano Dynamo front hub converts your pedaling power into all the energy needed to shift gears; no batteries required! There are no derailleurs to take care of—all of the gears are built into a well-sealed, virtually maintenance-free internal rear hub. And no brake levers to worry about—just like when you were a kid, simply pedal backwards to engage a powerful coaster brake The Easy Roller Coasting Bike also has a K2 Dream Ride Design frame which means you ride lower than on most bikes so you can place both feet naturally on the ground when not moving. What a cool bike, great for the laid-back type. You can buy this K2 hybrid bike for a price of $600. K2bikes.com.
