Bicycles are an environmentally friendly form of transportation but manufacturing them isn’t always a clean process. GW is working hard reduce the environmental impact of making bike parts.
When machining alloy parts, we need to use cutting fluid. During machining, cutting fluid is mixed with alloy shavings which are removed from the machine. We collect this mix and use a compressor that forces out the cutting fluid. The cutting fluid is collected, filtered then reused.
By using this process, we’re able to effectively reduce the amount of chemicals that can leak into groundwater and reduce the amount of cutting fluid we use. We’re always looking for new ways to make bikes a greener choice.
Every year at this time, GW Manufacturing proudly contributes to the MACC Fund and their fight against childhood cancers. For more than forty years, MACC has provided more than $65 million in funding to research and cures.
In August, Trek will be holding the Trek 100 cycling event in Waterloo, Wisconsin which will help to raise more funds for the MACC fund. We encourage everyone who is able to make a contribution to this worthwhile cause or to join this incredible event.

GW’s e-mountain bike hub line has been extensively tested to ensure it will stand up to the stresses from powerful motors and heavy bikes. These hubs are equipped with steel cassette bodies, extra bearings, oversized axles and brake cooling fins.
