One more good option for an affordable bike out of Florida by Republic Bike. The semi-custom track bikes are perfect for the in the moment hipster deep inside all of us. Choose from a limited set of colors to build the bike you want to ride.
They’re so trendy that Urban Outfitters has even picked up on this idea and teamed up with Republic to offer bikes on their website. I would urge any takers to avoid the Urban site and go straight to the source so as not to puff up the conservative supporting coffers of Richard Hayne.
I guess this is a good addition to the market, and it’s a smart model, but the cookie cutter “custom” makes me a little queasy. Whatever you say about these cycles, timeless they are not.
