Flat bar road bikes are a relatively new product to the industry. Think versatile here. Think city/commuter bike, but with some performance. A narrower wheel gives them speed and efficiency, like a road bike. Yet the ability to mount luggage racks, fenders, or wider tires gives them utility. You'll lean over on them, but not as much as on a road bike. A flat bar road bike is a good choice for that person who needs a utility bike, but enjoys some performance too. Here's what we carry. (All models include an Intown water bottle.)
Jamis Coda Sport
We start things off with the Jamis Coda Sport. It's a good looking bike that features a steel frame for a smooth, comfortable ride, and sports mid-range quality components for good shifting and quick stops. This is a great bike at an affordable price. Also available in Tiger's Eye.
Jamis Coda Sport Femme
This is the women's version of the Coda Sport with it's comfortable riding steel frame and mid-range quality components. However, it's designed with a lower stand-over height and shorter top tube to fit a woman's physique. Plus, it's pretty! Also available in Tiger's Eye. Why a Women's Bike?
Raleigh Cadent 2
The Cadent sports an aluminum frame that gives it a light, nimble feel, and features mid-range quality components for sure stops and precise shifting. It's designed with a bit shorter top tube so you'll sit a tad more upright, but it still retains the performance and versatility you'd expect in a nice, fast, city bike.
Jamis Coda Comp
The Coda Comp is our finest flat bar road bike. It's a handsome bike sporting a steel frame, carbon fiber fork and upper mid-range quality components. The steel frame and carbon fork give the bike a very smooth ride. The shifting is precise. It stops on a dime. It's one of those bikes that speaks for itself when you ride it. Although it makes a great utility bike, we think you'll enjoy it more for the shear performance.
Jamis Coda Comp Femme
Like it's brother above, the Coda Comp Femme sports a steel frame and carbon fork to give it a ride as smooth as glass. The upper mid-range quality components just add to the package. This is a beautiful bike. Come ride it and see.
The Raleigh Tripper 3 Speed
The Tripper is a variation of a flat bar road bike. Fat tires make it rugged. A steel frame gives it a smooth stable ride. The disc brakes make for reliable braking in all weather conditions, and the Shimano Nexus 3 speed hub makes it easy to pedal up hills, lends ease of operation, and will give years of service.
