Midsummer may very well be the season of the bicycle. With a steady schedule of backyard BBQs, concerts in the park, afternoons at the beach and general meandering about, it's crucial to have the proper warm-weather transportation. To accommodate such adventures we've compiled a short selection of city-ready bicycles, all under $800.
Handmade with durable American steel in Chicago, Daisy is a beefy rig that's likely to put up with more than a bit of abuse. The unisex bike combines the classic women's step-through and men's diamond frame designs with a coaster brake for a timeless aesthetic. Further enhancing its appeal to all shapes, sizes and sexes, Daisy comes in two sizes as a single-, three- or seven-speed and can be outfitted with multiple fender options. Find it at Heritage exclusively for $695—an essentially unbeatable price for a domestic-made bike.
