Your daily driver
There are lots of reasons to ride your bike daily—it’s great exercise, it’s good for the environment, and it will inject a bit of excitement into your routine. But too often, something gets in the way:
Mud and muck on your work pants from dirty roads. Gears that don’t shift properly. A bike that’s simply uncomfortable or not fun to ride.
Not so with this step-through urban commuter from Tout Terrain.
This one-off Metropolitan Trapez features an 11 speed Shimano Alfine internal gear hub for a low-maintenance drivetrain that allows you to change gears when you’re pedaling or stationary, say—at an unexpected stop light. 26˝ wheels with high-volume rubber provide a smooth, controlled ride on city streets or crushed gravel paths, and the step-through frame makes dismounting comfortable and easy no matter what you’re wearing.
An integrated rear rack in stainless steel allows you to easily install panniers to carry a change of clothes or your daily groceries, while lowrider mounts on the fork allow you to easily install a front rack for those larger hauls. SKS fenders keep the ride clean even when the road isn’t, allowing you to keep riding in comfort even when the weather turns sour.
If you’re looking for a comfortable, reliable bike that’s at home navigating your daily routine with ease, it’s time to step into a ride that’s a bit more cosmopolitan.
