Carbon and spandex be damned: The Electra Amsterdam Classic 3 cruiser should be your main ride. Outfitted with fenders, front and rear lights, a mud flap, a gear rack, a sleek coat/skirt guard and a bell, this bike is flat-out bitchin'. Add a hi-ten steel frame and Shimano components, and you've got a reliable two-wheeled commuter bike with plenty of class to spare. Plus, three speeds means you can climb Capitol Hill to hit Bender's for a beer and karaoke on Tuesday nights without breaking a sweat. — Rick White
