The pros at Fairmount Bicycle love this hybrid bike, which pairs road wheels with mountain bike components, and regularly recommend it to city-cycling virgins. "It's nice for beginners because it has mountain bike-style brakes and gearing with the shifters located directly on the handlebars, which is the style most people are used to," says Kyler George, a mechanic at Fairmount Bicycle.
