Pick The Right Bike to Roll

leave a comment »

Every major company offers women-specific designs, which may be one reason so many female celebrities are onto the cycling craze. Price vary, but expect to pay at least $300 for a rig made to last.Here are the top picks, no matter how you want to roll.

Look for – a downward sloping top tube (makes it easier to stand over the bike), a rear rack front basket, lights, kickstand, a bell, and fenders to protect you from road spray.

Ride smart – Cyclists must follow the same rules as motorists, including stopping at light and signaling turns. Check bikeleague.org for a state-by-state list of bike traffic laws.

Our picks – Ergonomic hand grips soften the ride on the Giant Transend DX W (above, $540, giant for women.com for stores). The Front and rear lights on the Globe Haul 1 Step Through ($660, globebikes.com for stores) will help you stand out on the road.
