Is driving an overrated and oversaturated way to travel? In terms of highway congestion, price of maintenance, and the havoc cars do on the planet, absolutely. And, to top it all off, highway traffic can actually kill you in more ways than one.
That's why we've turned our attention to biking whenever we can, but with a ride that is lightweight, easy to maneuver, and gets us from point A to point B with elegance. Any of these bikes will do the trick for you, and it only helps that they're on sale for 20% off. Here are 5 bikes that let you put the pedal to the metal (figuratively speaking, of course.)
The El Tigre gets its name from, not only being as fast as a tiger, but just as sleek. With a 'flip-flop hub' for fixed-gear cruising and a superlight, 26-pound body, this bike not only gets you where you need to be in a flash, but it's also perfect for riding anywhere. And hey, who knows, maybe you'll even share a ride or two with your buds to make them jealous (but we wouldn't blame you if you didn't, this baby is a one-man show.)
With all the same features as above, The Duke has a beach vibe for all the days you're cruising down the boardwalk (or, at the very least, wish you were). Named after Duke Kahanamoku, it's got a vintage beachcomber look with a lightweight feel you can take anywhere. Just make sure you wave aloha to all of your friends as you zip past them in style.
Feeling blue? Us too. That's why this bike and its aqua rims are the perfect accessories to our transportation collection. Equipped with all the same bells and whistles as El Tigre, this bike is perfect for a short trip to the store or 100 city blocks of traffic. Just please bike responsibly.
While we can't offer you a bike made of 24K gold, we can definitely jazz up your ride in terms of style. This bike features a matte black body, gold rims, and a host of envious looks wherever you ride it. Built with all of the same features as the above three, this lightweight bike will only look like it's dripping in heavy gold.
Last but not least, The Overthrow model is a no-frills kind of bike. Ready for work, play, or anything in between, the bike is a perfect mix of stylish and comfortable. Just add a jet black helmet and you'll be a 007 on double wheels.
