Our favourite Commuter bikes have a steel frame and a sensible selection of durable parts. Broadly speaking, they come in two flavours – Classic and Modern. Classic Commuters tend to be quite elegant. They have a more relaxed ride, a narrower range of gears and a swathe of colour-matched and polished parts. Modern Commuters tend to be more athletic than their Classic counterparts. They’re lighter and faster while maintaining functionality and comfort. Both flavours feature room for wide tyres, mud guards, and mounts for racks.
