Abstract:
U.S. commuter bikes have upright handlebars like those on mountain bikes, allowing the cyclist to
sit up and keep an eye on traffic. And they have smaller wheels and tougher tires, to survive
potholes. Unlike mountain bikes, they have fenders to protect business suits from rain and mud,
chain guards to shield cuffs from grease, a bell, light, baggage rack and comfortable saddle.

Even simpler is the Bridgestone Utility Bike, made by the Bridgestone Cycle (U.S.A.) unit of
Japan's Bridgestone. The BUB has only six gears, and a kickstand on its rear axle. One of Trek
Bicycle's three models of MetroTrack also has a kickstand. But all MetroTracks have 21 gears, like
a mountain bike, because "some U.S. cities are hilly," says product manager Harry Spehar.

The Bicycle Institute of America, in Washington, D.C., estimates two million Americans commute to
work by bike each day, but Grant Petersen, U.S. marketing director at Bridgestone Cycle, calls the
U.S. bike commuter "fictional." Long distances, cheap gasoline, few bike lanes, and fewer bike
lockers or showers at work discourage bicycle commuting, Mr. Petersen says.
