Upright Bikes - Sit Up and Enjoy the Ride http://momentummag.com/features/upright-bikes-sit-up-and-enjoy-the-ride/ The rider-friendly features of uprights tend to encourage a different style of riding than the recreation-oriented North American norm. en-us <function copyright at 0x6e29f50> Thu, 02 Jan 2014 20:06:07 GMT "Complete Bikes for Complete Streets"
For four years I have had a Giant Cypress with internal hub, front basket, rear paniers under a "trunk" I have rigged up. Can carry lots of stuff. For bad weather and some style, I have added bamboo fenders.

"Swung" both ways on this idea...
Ride what you like -- but NEVER be afraid to experiment!]]>

A range of geometries for a range of uses... I commute 16.5km every morning and again every afternoon but I just dont have the time to spend 75 minutes on an upright twice a day. Instead, my commute is also my workout and it takes 40 min on my road bike. I used to commute up to SFU on Burnaby mountain and this is simply not possible on an upright bike. I enjoy cycling because I can move quickly and efficiently wherever I want to go. This simply no possible on an upright bike.
Look around: the people who want to move quickly are on road bikes, the people who are covering long distances are on touring bikes, the people riding trails are on mountain bikes, and the people rolling down the block to the coffee shop in their street clothes are on uprights. Don't try to tell me that this is the bike that's going to do everything with style and grace because its not.]]>
