The Chance takes over from the Hold Steady as our primo urban bike. It’s a sleek, performance-oriented ride equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, a carbon fibre fork, and a rear internal 11-speed gear hub that allows you to switch gears anytime. If you want a reliable bike that’s easy to maintain, the Chance is a winning bet.
