Practical Bikes

A Practical Bike is one that helps you get things done without creating additional things for you to do.
In general Practical Bikes are:
  • Comfortable,
  • Durable,
  • Safe,
  • Easy to Use,
  • and they can Carry Things.
It's also nice if they:
  • Don't cost too much, and
  • Look good.
Here is a running list of Practical Bike candidates:
Bikes For The Rest Of Us
For homework, review some of these bikes, and come up with a list of features that you would want on your very own Practical Bike. Now you can start shopping.
