The good folks at Dynamic Bicycles offered their "Crossroad" commuter bike to us for testing. In many respects, it is like so many other commuter-oriented bicycles on the market - TIG-welded aluminum frame, mounting points for fenders and rear rack, upright riding position. Where this bike differs, however, is how power gets from the pedals to the rear hub. This bike uses a very clever and deceptively simple shaft drive. Yeah, that's right - no greasy chain, no chainrings to chew up your pants. Overall, I think Dynamic has a winner with their Crossroad. It appears (and rides) in every way like the around-town errand, commuting and recreation bike it was meant to be, and you just can't beat its low-maintenance features. No more greasy chain tattoos, tattered pants cuffs or dirty hands from a mid-ride tire change!
Buying a bike for the first time can be a challenge, if you don’t know what choices you have. This is why; you must have at least basic idea about different types of bicycles and then decide which one will suit your needs the best.
