You May Get

Hybrid

Your best bike companion is a comfortable, utilitarian, middle-of-the-road bike. On this bike, your posture won't be aggressive, nor lackadaisical, but right in-between at about a 45 degree bend. With wider tires than a road bike, but slimmer, slicker, and larger than a mountain bike, you'll be comfortable on the dirt, but fast on the road. Your bike friend will most likely have straight bars, offer shock absorption features, may come equipped with fenders and back rack if you're lucky,  and have a sportier style. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions.

Single Speed

Your true bike companion is an urban city dweller with a flare for fashion like you. This bike's options are not in its gears, but in its style. Single speeds come in a variety of styles to choose from--beach cruisers, classic dutch, urban designs to name a few. The feature that makes a single speed a single speed is, well, that it only has one speed. (Bikes with three speeds can be included here too, though). There is great variety in the frame geometry of single speed bikes today, from cafe racing bikes with an aggressive riding position (think hipster bike) to the beach cruiser. Single speeds are great for the urban dwelling, lightweight commuter. You don't want to truck more than what will fit in your cool messanger bag or cute front basket. Lighter weight models can be great for moving up and down walk-up apartments. Easy maintenance. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions. *Please note, a fixed gear bike, which has gained popularity in some circles these days, would be in this category of bike. The makers of this website do not recommend fixed gear bikes for daily commuting. What makes a fixed gear bike a fixed gear is that the pedals are directly linked to the wheel such that the wheel does not spin freely. Brake power is gained by the rider's ability to stop the back wheel from moving. Over time, the wear on the body of the rider from fixed gear riding is undesirable. This is also not a good bike for a beginner. If you think you might like this kind of bike, think about it for a second bike.

Rugged Road

Your best bicycle buddy is adventuresome and ready to take on anything, and it's built to the task. "Rugged Road" is not an official type of bike, so don't go into a bike shop asking for one of these. The term is used here to encompass bike models made for touring or cyclo-cross that can also make good transport bikes for people in need of a more rugged ride. These bikes usually do well on both road and dirt, and have strong, sturdy frames to withstand some beating and hauling. These bikes are good for people who will be carting considerable loads often, or facing different terrain, but still want the road bike feel. Your riding posture will be more on the aggressive side, with drop bar, flat bar, or mustache bar options. Some bike companies are coming out with commuter-specific models that fit in this category. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions.

Road

Your best bike match is used to the road and loves speed. It's an athlete. This lightweight bike will take you anywhere in the city and beyond, the fastest way possible, but at a cost for comfort. Skinny tires, lots of gears, and an aggressive riding posture demands commitment from its rider. Great for people who will be going many miles without much stuff. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions.

Mountain

Your best bike companion loves the great outdoors. It can feel at times like it doesn't fit quite right in the city, but there are many happy commuters on mountain bikes. For the less confident rider, these easy-to-handle bikes can instill security. Soon you'll be hopping curbs with your two-wheeled friend! Mountain bikes have slightly smaller wheels than the other types of bikes (usually), and knobbier tires (which can be exchanged for a better road ride.) These bikes typically come with straight bars, but have a somewhat appresive riding position. They can offer features that lesson the impact of a bumpy ride, such as shocks. Mountain bikes are burley and make good commuting bikes for those planning on hooking up a trailer, for someone who desires curb hopping over speed, or for someone encountering dirt terrain in their daily travels. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions.

Cargo

Your best bike companion wants to be loved by the whole family. These bikes are specially built with extra carrying capacity for those who need to cart kids regularly, large loads, or want to live out of their bike. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions.

Step-Through Frame

This is surely a feature of your perfect two-wheeled partner if you love to wear dresses and skirts, or want to attach a kid-carrier! The top bar of these frames swoop down, allowing skirts and dresses to easily be worn by the rider. Bikes with step-through frame models are usually single speeds, bike with a few simple gears, and hybrids. Visit the Bike Info page for more information and bicycle descriptions.
