BUYERS GUIDE TO: LEISURE BIKES

Leisure bikes are aimed at the cyclist looking for an everyday bike. That's it, something to cruise around both on road and very light duty off road. Something that's both comfortable and durable without being too heavy. A leisure bike typically has 26" mountain bike size wheels or 700c road wheels. The tyres would be fast rolling with a low profile tread designed to cover nothing rougher than a gravel track or smooth bridleway.

Leisure bikes are popular amongst those who haven't had a bike for a while and want nothing more than to get out and about getting a little bit of exercise every now and again.

Excellent examples include the Specialized Crosstrail. Scott Sportsters are also a popular alternative and have been a top seller for many years.
