Bikes that are specifically designed for urban lifestyles are becoming increasingly popular. Many people who live in cities and towns are building their fitness levels and being more environmentally friendly by using cycling as an alternative to car travel. Bicycles used almost exclusively for an urban area including daily commuting, need to be carefully tailored to their environment to ensure efficiency and convenience for the rider.
Until recently there was a shortage of high quality womens urban bikes. However, there is now a large range for ladies to choose from. It is important to ensure that an urban road bike has certain features that will improve ease of riding.
As the bike is likely to be used on a regular basis, often daily, comfort is a must. Urban bikes should be designed with comfort in mind. Urban bikes designed specifically for women will be a more comfortable ride than a unisex or male bicycle. Make sure they have upright handlebars as this is kinder to your back.
Urban bikes for ladies should be lightweight, this will improve speed and ensure they are easily transportable. Tyres should be significantly thinner than a mountain or hybrid bike, however they should be thick enough to deal with certain features of cities such as curbs. Although you are unlikely to be trekking up mountains or harsh landscapes on your bike, it is still important to ensure the frame is durable. This will mean the bicycle could potentially last for years to come providing it is maintained well.
