new Hubway => Blue Bikes for Boston https://t.co/LeRjnevyEj— Michael Hirsch Ph.D. (@sci_vision) May 9, 2018
At the time of the video stream above, I didn’t realize May 9, 2018 was the rollout day of Blue Bikes transition from Hubway in greater Boston. The NuVinci Nfinity shifters are amazing, particularly due to the much wider gear range, and the fact that it’s continuous. The continuous gear ratio is truly remarkable and enjoyable.
A week later, I see almost 100% Blue Bikes branding. The original second generation bikes with the taillight in the fender seem to be gone entirely. I still see a few first generation bikes (taillights near rear hub) with Blue Bikes branding.
Consider trying the new generation Blue Bikes at least once, it is vastly superior to the old Hubway experience.
