Editor's Notes

February 18, 2019:

For riders who like to go fast, we included options like the Cinelli Tipo Pista, 6KU Urban Track, and Pure Cycles Pure Fix Premium, which are essentially racing bikes that have been equipped with just enough extra components to make them safe for street use. If you are looking for something for relaxed weekend rides by the beach or around town, you'll do no better than the Sixthreezero Around the Block and Firmstrong Bruiser. If storage space is an issue, the Vilano Urbana is a strong contender. Once folded, you can easily carry it up stairs and store it in a closet if needed. The Golden Cycles Steel and 6KU Urban Track are smart choices for somebody who needs a quality ride, but is hampered by a tight budget.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
