Having just moved our homes and office into the Park Modern, located in Seattle’s urban but eclectic University District, some of the folks here at BUILD llc are looking into a practical, yet well designed way to get around town. We’ve done some homework and have come up several very good candidates for modern, urban bicycles (also referred to as commuting bicycles, but that sounds so serious). Here is the BUILD modern cycle comparison so far, let us know if there are any other great bicycles out there that should be considered:

DWR is actually selling the Biomega bike. I saw it in the shop the other day and that’s what sparked all of this – what gorgeous bike! They sell four different versions.
