Urban Bikes are just that, bikes which have been specifically designed to be used across the urban environment, and these bikes are perfect for absolutely everything - from nipping down to the post office in the village, picking up a takeaway from across town, right across to commuting across London each day.
Although many customers choose to use a mountain bike on their daily commute, urban bikes do offer a number of advantages over using a mountain bike around town and city. One of the biggest advantages of choosing a dedicated urban bike VS a mountain bike, is the riding position. Mountain bikes, and road bikes too for that matter - often require an aggressive cycling position, which can become uncomfortable on the commute. Instead, urban bikes focus on providing a very comfortable riding position, which allows for unbeatable levels of comfort and all round visibility.
As well as being the bike of choice for those looking for the ultimate in comfort, urban bikes can also be accessorised with a range of add-ons which makes everyday life a little easier. Such add ons include mudguards, pannier racks and the ability for storage to be added on.
Some of these urban bikes feature front suspension forks, although these forks do not have a massive range of travel within them. More often than not, urban bikes have no suspension, just solid forks and frame, as aside from the odd bump in the road suspension is not necessary.
All of our urban bikes have been handpicked from manufactures of bikes that we know and trust to design and manufacture the very best bikes for the market - ranging in price, these brands, such as Whyte, use the latest in design and technology to provide a bike design which ticks all of the boxes when it comes to comfort, design and quality.
