Specialized bikes are cool

When I bought my first mountain bike Specialized was a big brand. Then - at least to me - it seemed like the brand gradually disappeared of the radar. Maybe it’s because Dutch bike sellers didn’t have enough interest, or their collection didn’t have enough to offer, I don’t know.

But since a few years they are also claiming their position within the market of urban lifestyle bikes. Fixed bikes, daily use bikes, speedy messenger bikes, it’s there. I like the styling, use of materials and the prices & quality are on par. And this American brand proves that not only Dutch guys are man enough to ride around with a basket on the front  ;)  

So, in the market for a bike? There are enough reasons to take a look at Specialized sublabel ‘Globe’ and you can find all the info here.
