The three-speed Belleville arrives ready to roll with front and rear racks and fenders that keep road wetness at bay. It’s also sustainably built with tires made from reclaimed rubber and a recyclable frame and saddle. But dogma isn’t what gets people downtown—it’s the quality of the ride. This bike got thumbs-up on the latter, too. The low-maintenance Shimano drivetrain shifted smoothly, and we love that the pedal-powered lights never need new batteries. The only bummer: sometimes three speeds aren’t enough. 40lbs.
