27 Lightweight Bikes

From Limited-Edition City Cycles to Aluminum Bikes

— March 15, 2014 — Autos
Transportation in a city can be stressful and costly, but with these lightweight bikes these factors can be improved.

Road rage is a huge problem in many major cities. In rush hour people are late for work, and their patience begins to run extremely low. If someone cuts them off for no apparent reason, tempers flair and accidents happen. These lightweight bikes offer an alternative way to ride into work, and are so light you can even bring them up a flight of stairs to one's office. Another great feature on certain bikes is their foldable qualities, so they can fit into tight spaces. Just hop on the bike, head to work then pack up your ride to fit snuggly beside your desk. However, be sure to watch out for any colleagues who were cut off in a traffic jam that morning!
