The Speedster R2 is the ultimate hybrid bike whether for fitness, commuting or even as a neighborhood cruiser bike. It's lightweight and rides smooth like a road bike, but the mountain bike-style geometry, including riser handlebars, allow you to sit more upright, making it comfortable, safe, and controllable to ride in all types of traffic.
Use It as a Commuter Bike
As a commuter bike: because you sit upright more, it’s safer in traffic. It’s also light so you can carry it up stairs if you need to. The wide slick tires and gearing make it about 20% more efficient than a mountain or other large tire bike. You can also add accessories easily: there are mounting bolts on the front and back for racks, and alloy fenders come already installed.
Use it as a Cruiser Bike
As a cruiser bike: the Speedster is at least 10 lbs lighter than a traditional cruiser bike, so you’ll go farther and faster. The upright seating position allows you to talk easily with others as you ride. Plus you have multiple gear options (27-speeds) for hills and valleys. You’ll enjoy the ride around the lake or the beach much more with this bike. It also has mounting bolts for child carriers.
The Ultimate Hybrid Bike
As a Hybrid bike: You can get optional mountain bike treaded tires to take the Speedster on trails. The all-aluminum frame and components are extremely durable. The hydraulic disc brakes will also stop you in any condition.
