New Top Category Link – Bike Manufacturers

Submitted by on December 31, 2010 – 9:48 amNo Comment

What do you get when you combine endless cotton fields (now all paved),  typically wide and generous streets,  and an emerging bike trail and infrastructure system?

Dallas, Texas of course.

While not all of Dallas is as bike friendly as we would like (at least not yet),  Dallas lends itself well to urban cycling and throw in our DART rail system and you can get anywhere in the county on a bicycle.  We have very few hills which means you can pretty much commute on anything you want.  In other words, gears are optional.

But wait, there’s more…

In recent years there has been a significant upturn in newly manufactured commuter, urban and utility bike offerings.  Comfortable, stylish bikes with classic lines are becoming a norm (again) for many bicycle manufacturers and importers in North America.  Many come with cargo or porteur racks already installed or as an integrated feature.  But unless you spend hours pecking through websites (we admit we do) or visit your local bike shop often (we admit this as well), chances are you might not know what’s available out there in the wild.

Well, we thought we’d help educate folks on some of the current offerings by  adding a links page to Biking In Dallas devoted to manufacturers links, specifically those who sell city/utility type of bikes:

We’re planning to review some modern and new bikes soon.  And when I get time I’m going to also add links to parts manufacturers that make sense for urban cyclists.  In the meantime click on the “Bike Manufacturers” link above and take a look at some of the more impressive production bikes being made these days.

If we’ve missed a company that makes city/utility/urban bikes just send us an email with a link (or reply to this post) and we’ll I’ll add them.

The following two tabs change content below.
Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
