Should you buy a comfort bike for commuting? Probably not. If you’re plan is to only use the bike for commuting then you’d definitely be better looking into a road or hybrid bike.
However, if your commute is less than a couple miles and on smooth flat terrain then you could get away with a comfort or cruiser bike.
Comfort bikes wasn’t originally designed for commuting. Comfort bikes are designed for uses such as leisure riding to the local shops or around town. The wider tires, suspension seat, inward curved handlebars are all features to provide comfort for short distance riding.
There designed for light exercise. And not medium to long distance commutes.
If you believe that a comfort bike is for you, you’re probably best of asking the question. Will I be using it for one of the following uses?
- Leisure riding
- Short distance commutes (Less than 2 miles)
- Running local errands and to the local shops
