Urban & Commuting Bikes

With few exceptions, almost any type of bike can be successfully used for getting around the city, but bikes best suited to daily commuting generally give the rider a somewhat upright riding position, moderately smooth but durable tires, and options for carrying loads on the bike. Our favorite urban bikes include models specifically designed for that purpose, as well as hybrid bikes, single-speeds, and certain types of road bikes. Folding bikes get their own page, as they are a phenomenal urban transportation option.

Below is a more complete summary of urban bikes available from our vendors. While we endeavor to represent a good selection in our shop, we can’t possibly stock all that they offer. Some of these models are part of our regular store inventory, some are available only by special order, and — sadly — we and the vendors do sometimes run out of popular models.

If you would like to purchase a bike that is not in our inventory, we are able to order risk-free any model that our vendors offer. Unlike internet vendors, we will help you with the selection and sizing, and include shipping, complete professional assembly, and a full year of maintenance with your bicycle purchase.
