One of the best ways to navigate the pavement. Call it a flat-bar road bike, a fitness commuter, a way to dodge overpriced gas, a personal investment in your own quality of life. It’s all of these things, and then some.
With their lightweight, hydroformed aluminum frames, gram saving carbon fiber and aluminum straight blade forks, fast rolling tires, compact double-chainring cranksets, and quick-shifting/short-cage road-bike derailleurs, we keep the fitness and fun factor high. But we borrow a little bit from the mountain bike playbook, with an upright seating posture that’s easily adjustable for the best and most comfortable fit and conveniently placed shifters and brake levers that make spinning and stopping intuitive.
Their wide-range gearsets let you change gears with fingertip-triggered shifts, putting hill-climbing power or high-speed spinning just a few clicks away. Whether you’re out for a spirited fitness ride or a casual lunchtime excursion, you’ll always have the right gear. Which makes sense, because this is obviously the right bike.
