Whether you’re running errands, commuting to work, going for a family ride, or a relaxing an evening cruise, Opus provides practical and affordable bikes that stand up to the daily grind of city living. Below are 5 bikes from Opus that will meet the needs of any city cyclists or you can explore their entire line of city bikes here.
Electric bikes can help people overcome some of the challenges that prevent them from using a bike in their daily life. Whether the barrier(s) they face is hilly terrain, not wanting to arrive at work sweaty, or a long commute, among many others, an e-bike can make getting around the city by bicycle accessible and fun for all.
Showcasing the Shimano STEPS system, the sporty Opus WKND does triple duty on commutes, workouts and fun rides. The light, hydroformed alloy frame has the stiffness to react instantly to pedal input. Result — an uncannily responsive ride. The STEPS system’s downtube battery, concealed cables and aero wheels also make the WKND look as fast as it feels. Saddle up and never wait for the weekend again!
Urban Performance, with the accent on performance. Citato are flat bar bikes for those who want a light and fast machine that can whisk you through the urban landscape or on to the open road. Featuring clean lines and top quality parts including hydraulic disc brakes, these bikes are as stylish as they are fleet, nimble and fun to ride.
The upright positioning and the flat handlebar makes it a perfect bike for commuting to work or just riding for fun and fitness. Add the 20-speed Shimano drivetrain, and that commute doesn’t seem so long, that last hill doesn’t seem so steep, and taking the longer route home seems a little more appealing. Plus, a quality stem, seatpost, and handlebar from Opus round out the build and you’ll knock off the miles in comfort on the Opus saddle.
The perfect city bike should provide hassle-free riding no matter the season, weather, or time of day. While you can get around the city on any bike in working order, there are a few features that will make your commute, your errands, and your general enjoyment of your bicycle as easy as possible.
The Orpheo LRT is the perfect Lightweight Rapid Transport for your daily commute. Full fenders offer superior protection, while powerful hydraulic disc brakes stop you safely in all weather.

Meanwhile, the LRT’s stealth looks keep your new ride under the urban radar.
