Introducing Level: Designed & Built In SF
Introducing Level, a simple and intuitive shifter for internal 8-speed hubs designed and
manufactured in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Available now on any custom Mission Bicycle Sutro.
Design control with no exceptions
Level's spacer-mount eliminates design constraints by allowing any handlebar style to be matched with our
Shimano 8-speed internal hub offering. That's complete design freedom paired with the versatility and reliability
of our internally geared Sutro bicycle. Choose the riding posture best suited to your streets and we will do the rest.
Just another way we're empowering city riders.
Superior shifting that's always nearby
From its stem position, Level is always nearby no matter your handlebar style or hand position, and it will never
clutter your grip area. Pull the lever towards you to make pedaling easier or push it away from you to make pedaling

entire Level development – from concept, to prototype, to fabrication and assembly – took place in the San Francisco
