The new Breezer Doppler is a butted chromoly steel touring bike that’s built around 650B wheels, with a little more traditional geometry than the slacker Radar, but not as steep as a pure road bike. Joe Breeze wanted something classic, but that would handle really well even when fully loaded.
Max tire up to 650B x 50 with the fender, or a 2.1 MTB tire without fenders.
The frame has rack and fender mounts integrated into the design, and it comes stuck with full coverage chrome fenders.
It has thru axles front and rear, and the fork sits inside a 44mm head tube. This Doppler Pro comes with a 1-1/8″ straight steerer steel fork, but there’s a tapered carbon fork on higher end Doppler Team…possible with that head tube style and various lower BB cups.
It comes with a Shimano Tiagra 2×10 group with mechanical levers leading to TRP HyRD hydraulic disc brake calipers.
Finishing touches include a recycled PET handlebar wrap that feels like fabric, but is waterproof and will last longer…and the saddle is color matched, and both match the tires’ tan sidewalls. It’s a sweet little package, made even better by the low $1,199 / €1,399 retail price. The team model with upgraded spec and carbon fork will run $1,999.
For pure city riding, the Doppler Cafe swaps in a metro-style swept flat bar and cork grips, a SRAM Apex 1×11 group and fully hydraulic disc brake calipers.
For $1,099 / €TBD, you still get full coverage fenders, and a bump to WTB tires and wheels.
