Shaft drive, ride chain and grease free !


Arcade Cycles are the European leaders in shaft drive bicycles which have become our speciality.

Thanks to this technology, inspired by prestige motorbikes, a shaft drive  replaces the chain, with many advantages :

  • Cleanliness : no more grease on the bottom of trousers
  • Security : no more chain coming off
  • Longevity : the Shimano Nexus transmission system, entirely protected in the pedalboard and rear hub, is sheltered from projections (dust, mud, sand, stones, salt in winter) and very resistant to falls
  • Low-maintenance : reliable and durable, the system replacing the chain and derailleur does not require any specific maintenance
  • Fluidity and simplicity of gear change : the changing of gear takes place independently of the pedalling, in a stationary position or whilst pedalling, without any derailment risk.


Riding without chain and grease is cleaner and safer.  Gentlemen, forget the unique look of bicycle clips !  Ladies, forget all about chains coming off !
