Speciality Bikes Are Fun
Alternatives To Old Standards

The availability of specialty bikes can be the difference between being able to ride or not. Or, maybe you just want a different kind of ride for a change of pace. In any case you do have some pretty cool options.

Some specialty bikes are designed for physically challenged people while others are designed for the more adventurous riders that are just looking for something different. They can make you re-think what bicycle riding is all about.
