The best urban bikes on the market often come with road-bike-size tyres, making it capable of bombing cheerfully along towpaths and easy trails as well as shrugging off the worst potholes. The is why the Trek Neko SL is a women-specific townie with a difference.
It even has a suspension fork to spare your wrists the impact of holes and rocks, and its huge gear range makes it capable of tackling the steepest hills, so it’s a great weekend bike too.
There’s a Bontrager women’s saddle, of course, and Trek has been in the vanguard of women-specific frame design since 2001, so the ride and handling are poised, comfortable and sorted.
