Getting around town on a bicycle is a very convenient and healthy way of travelling and getting your daily errands done, from commuting to shopping. You'll save time and money and gain health.
If your thing is customisation and a retro look, thefixed bicycles are the last cry around town. They are old restored bikes that combine purely classic aspects such as the fixed drivetrain, with modern components such as the high profile wheels.
Unfortunately, the city is also full of dangers, which is why you mustn't neglect your main gear like the helmet. Also it's very important to always carry a few spares, such as a chamber, an air pump, or a set of Allen keys. A breakdown in the middle of a trip can ruin your day if you don't have the right components at the right time.
And if you're short on storage space at home, or if you combine the bike with public transport, what you need is a folding bicycle in order to carry it around comfortably when you're not pedalling, and to store it in any old corner of the office. Within the folding sector Brompton is a reference brand that affords excellent practicality and convenience in all their products.
For those who prefer greater comfort and avoid fatigue but without ruling out the bicycle as a mode of transport, you could go for an electric bicycle, a normal bike with an electric motor that that is only activated when pedalling, providing great assistance to the movement of the drivetrain. If you are looking for an electric bicycle, find out about possible grants from your town hall. Capital cities such as Barcelona have already backed this type of vehicle, offering grants for their purchase.
