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 thin 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.

We endeavor to represent a wide selection of popular and niche categories in the store, however we cannot possibly stock all that our vendors offer. Many of their offerings are part of our regular store inventory, but we and the vendors do sometimes run out.

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.
