Commuter Bikes & Flat Bar Road


Commuter bikes are typically designed to be quick and robust. Rider positioning and components will dictate whether the bike suits the "hurried" commuter or the "sight-seeing" commuter. Before picking a commuter bike, consider the following: 1) will you commute in all weather/seasons? 2) pathway or road? 3) fenders &/or racks or neither? 4) because you want the exercise, because you don't want to pay for parking, becaue you're a bike person?. The answer to these questions could mean you should consider a cyclocross/gravel/drop-bar bike, use an old mountain bike, or pick from the kinds of bikes we sell. Chat with us. We're happy to share our thoughts, show you some bikes, talk about options...

Dual Sport (Suspension fork Equipped Hybrids)


Dual Sport, Cross Trail, X-Road - all branded names for essentially the same thing - a hybrid. A bike taking some inspiration from a road bike and some from a mountain bike. So: if you're looking for a bike that is more comfortable and rugged than a road bike for knocking around roads, pathways and dirt pathways, yet lighter and faster than a mountain bike, this is your guy.

A broad range of quality, comfort levels and interpretations of this bike exist. Common features are: suspension fork, flat handlebars, a fit that has less reach between saddle and handlebars, tires that are about 1/2 the width of mountain bike tires but on a slightly larger diameter wheel. This category has become very popular over the last couple years with a common story of 1/2 time commuter, 1/2 time riding with family on paths that may turn into little sections of dirt or light-duty off-road trails. Both the Giant and Marin offer excellent value - consider and try both to get one that feels just right for you.

Comfort Bikes


This category of bikes serves 1 purpose. Make cycling enjoyable & fun for the casual cyclists - or is that 2 purposes?


2018 Giant Sedona DX

We are thrilled to see this bike back from Giant. It was super popular then disappeared for a couple years... and its back better than ever

This is a really comfortable bike: the comfort provided by a nice squishy saddle atop a shock-absorbing seatpost, fat bump absorbing tires and a bunch of adjustability in the cockpit to get the perfect blend of horizontal reach and handlebar height.

Shimano 24 speed drivetrain gets you up hills while the disc brakes safely slow you down in the opposite direction.

$649



2018 Momentum iNeed

This is a commuter bike for the person that casually cruises to work. It has some really practical features like the integrated cup hold and rear rack, colour matched fenders, and kickstand.

Maybe its just me but this bike inspires relaxing while you ride. Styling is kinda retro and kinda futuristic. It seems like a smoking deal for $589!

Functional features include 7 speeds (enough to be useful, few enough to not seem too complex) operated with a grip-shift style shifter. V-brakes for simple, effective braking. Don't forget the minimal chain guard that will keep your bell-bottoms out of the chain when you dress up as Sonny or Cher at Halloween

$589


2018 Momentum iWant

If you aren't super confident on a bike and really want to be able to get your feet firmly planted on the ground while seated, this is the bike

This is a light bike with a seated position close to the ground, with an upright back and almost zero weight supported by the hands.

Gearing is simple: 7 speeds operated with a rotating grip. Enough gears to get around, not so many that you're intimidated or confused.

Also: cup holder integrated into the bike frame, bell and kickstand

$589



2018 Giant Simple 3 Women's

Taking inspiration from California beach cruisers to get a rad look and inspiration for aluminum pop-cans to make it quite light.

These bikes look great and the basket makes them great for crusing in urban settings. 3 speeds in the hub help the bike pedal up and down little rolling hills.

$589

Be Prepared


Just because you're riding within city limits doesn't mean you don't have to think ahead. For every twit who breaks a bottle, there is a good chance to get a flat tire. For every nice day, is another nice day that turns nasty - Quick! For every you, there are a thousand other cyclists.

The point of this isn't to philosophise, it is to remind you to be self sufficient. Carry a pump, tube, patch kit and little emergency repair kit. A windproof vest folds away to nothing but can be the difference between getting just a little chilly and freezing your but off. Lastly, remember a light and bell.

While we're speaking of bells and stuff. Many walkers and joggers don't like us cyclists - and in some cases they have good reason. We, as cyclists, must remember to be courteous and give pedestrians enough room that they aren't alarmed or threatened as we pass.

A last tid-bit. Obey the laws. Every one of us is an ambassador for cycling. While dumb-asses in their Ford Subdivisions can do what they want, we pay the penalty of injury, death and spoiling the image of cycling every time we break the law. Lets not give the vehicle drivers anything to bitch about!



A Thought on All-Season Commuter Bikes


I admire those people who commute summer and winter, rain or shine or snow. If this is you, or who you aspire to be, picking the right bike can minimize hassle and expense.

When all season commuter bikes break down, it is typically a result of corrosion and the effects of grinding fine grit through all the moving parts. Chains, cassettes, front derailleurs, cables, tires and brake pads are the most common wear items. One strategy for buying a commuter bike is to not over-spend. I personally think if you aim your thoughts at bikes with Shimano Acera or Alivio 24 or 27 speed drivetrains and ideally with disc brakes you probably get the most miles per dollar and least mechanical issues per mile. Essentially, it is the harshness of the commuting environment that destroys componentry as opposed to the componentry's overall quality that causes it to die at the Acera/Alivio level. Replacement chains, cassettes and brake pads are typically better priced for these levels too.

I am also terrible at taking my own advice as many people who love fancy bikes would be. I use a pretty fancy drivetrain on my winter/spring bike but it means I am constantly cleaning and lubing the chain and derailleur... Which brings up the importance of cleaning and lubing... but that is another story.



Maintenance... The old Clean it and Lube it Story



The bike that is used for daily chores is often the most neglected. It is a mode of transportation and utility and often gets treated as such. Unless visiting us and spending money to replace prematurely worn parts is fun for you, consider spending an extra 10 minutes per week to properly clean and lube your chain, check tire pressure, spin the wheels looking for wobbles that might be starting... heck, even consider an overall cleaning. It will save you money and frustration in the long run. If you're not sure about the correct procudure for any of this then drop by the shop and let us show you.



Momentum... The brand


Momentum is a brand you may not have heard of. Not to worry, it isn't some fly-by-night brand, it is a brand owned by Giant Bicycles that concentrates on innovative, budget friendly city bikes.
