Half the fun of cycling is owning a beautiful bicycle. As riding for transportation has become more popular, there are a plethora of covetable rides on the city streets. These bikes are works of art, as lovely to behold stationary in one’s abode as they are in motion. The chicest of bicycles take the purest of form, some with only a single speed. Their posture is upright, giving the body a position of sophistication. Many are imported from countries such as England, Holland, and Italy, noted for their elegant bicycles and long tradition of city cycling.

We have gathered a collection of what we think are the 12 chicest city cycles on the street. While we have selected either the mens or womens frame, all are available with their own unique style for each gender.

As commuter cycling has grown increasingly popular in major metropolitan cities, it has borne a distinct urban cycling style. As this is not cycling for recreation, but for transportation, the look is one that needs to transition easily from sport into workplace attire… albeit casual.

Europeans have been using bicycles as a form of transportation for a long time now and the cycling tradition is rich in history. The design of the bicycles and apparel we see on US city streets is inspired by cities like London, Amsterdam and Paris, but with its own uniquely American style. It is rugged but refined, elegant but tough.

Urban commuter bikes and their riders are built to take the beating of city streets but this breed handles it with style. Ones bike is a fashion statement and there are so many beautiful ones on the market, in addition to accessories likes helmets, shoes, saddles and and even bells.
