At Bikes Online, you can find Urban Bikes, Fixie Bikes, City Bikes, Vintage Bikes, and Town Bikes. These bikes are specifically designed for the urban rider and focus on safety, durability, and ease of use. Urban bikes use aluminum or even steel frames, known for their lightweight and durability. Some Urban bikes feature standard Shimano gears, other feature innovative hub gears.
Hub gears are excellent for urban riders for a few reasons:
- No damage to the drivetrain - all fragile components are inside the hub;
- You can change gears without pedaling - this is particularly handy when you come to a red light and need to change gears before the light goes green;
- Low maintenance - hub gears are self-lubricated and require little to no maintenance from your end; and
- Inconspicuous looks - because it lacks a rear derailleur, these bikes look simpler and cheaper, thus attracting less undesirable attention.
