Description

The Midtown is our entry-level urban bike, it's designed to entice you out of the car and onto the bike path. You could buy and burn up a dozen tanks of gas, or for about the same price, you could buy this bike and still be riding it decades from now. Quality, basic components are easy to maintain, so it's a reliable ride for getting from point A to point B. Outfit it with a rack and panniers and it will get you smoothly from point C to D as well. Larger-diameter wheels roll more easily than the standard 26in. mountain bike wheels, but can still handle bumps, dug-up pavement and unpaved side streets. For this year, we gave the Midtown a new paint job and upgraded it from 8 speeds to 9.
