Urban bicycles are made for city riders and are often also called “commuters.” While you can ride almost any bicycle in the city or on your commute, these bikes have some key features that make them ideal for all your city and commuting needs.
Urban bikes are truly designed with the city rider in mind. Typically, these models come with flat handlebars and simple or internal gearing to make them easy to maintain.
Perhaps the most telling part of an urban bicycle are the extra features that make protect the rider from city grime and allow them to carry everything they need. Fenders, chain guards, skirt guards, rear and front racks, and built in baskets are all designed to do just that.
The Urban riding position keeps the rider seated upright and looking forward so that their eyes can be focused on the road ahead of them.
