best commuter bikes 2020


These days, you’d be hard-pressed to score a commuter bike since they’re in such high-demand. If it seems like there are more bikers exploring all that life has to offer, it’s because more bikers really are taking to the streets. Finding the right bike takes equal parts research and luck—whether you’re ready to move up from an existing bike-share program, or you’re simply looking to invest in a bike that can be a witness to unforgettable memories.

Some of the best qualities of commuter bikes are their value, dependability and inherent versatility. Do you plan for the majority of your miles to be clocked on smooth, paved streets but you still enjoy off-roading? There’s a comfort bike for that. Working your way up to triathlon training, but not ready to go full-pro just yet? Go with a hybrid option. Ultimately, your commuter bike should be just as ambitious as you are. After all, “going the distance” hits differently when the ride is smooth enough for you to coast through difficult terrain.

We’ve helped you consider your options and listed the 10 best commuter bikes—including comfort, hybrid, and folding bikes—that you can still get your hands on.
