the bike includes an integrated wire lock safety system instead of a down tube. if the lock is cut the bicycle frame breaks, making it unusable. the biomega ‘BOS’ has a carbon external belt drive that strong, quiet and requires little to no maintenance compared to a chain system. it’s grease-free, oil-free and riders will never have to pull over to fix a dropped bike chain.
