HOY by nature, the Shizuoka .002 is a fast, efficient and comfortable ride, combining the speed and efficiency of a road bike with the rugged durability of a mountain bike. Whether you need a bike for the 9-5 commute or more leisurely weekend ride on the country lanes and gravel towpaths, this versatile hybrid bike is equally at home.
When we set about designing the Shizuoka it needed to be fast-rolling to get you from A-B as quick and effortlessly as possible but strong and reliable enough to cope with the tough city streets or short-cut tracks. We designed the bike around a lightweight but durable triple-butted 6061 aluminium frame, with fast 700C wheels using semi-treaded 28C tyres on wider rims to help increase rolling speed and comfort. Rims can become dirty and worn quickly around town, causing defective braking so every HOY city bike is equipped with all-weather hydraulic disc brakes for reliable stopping power. The Shizuoka boasts all of the practicalities you would expect including rack mounts and plenty of clearance for mudguards and larger cyclo-cross tyres if light off-road use is your thing too. The Shizuoka .002 uses a Shimano Sora 2 × 9 drivetrain for wide-range road gearing.
