Welll, well, lookie here. Chro-mo 3p Town bikes, classic lines, $350

It looks like Bikesdirect are looking to offer up some nice, affordable town bikes with some style.

too bad the men's frame size options seem limited - I'd be leery that a 56 cm would fit my 35" inseam properly. Still. Very stylish looking bikes. The mixtes are very cool!

Those are pretty. If I lived in town I'd definitely want a bike like that. As is I have to ride 5 miles on 50 MPH roads to get to somewhere I could noodle around.

The city/town bikes are the first of the four different market segments to ship from that market survey that BD posted a while back. The mini's should start shipping May/June, the monster cross might be before or after the mini's, and got no idea if they ordered any of the balloon tire bikes.

When I got the email from BD and saw them I got all excited because I have a friend that I thought should buy one. Then I looked at them online and realized that they wouldn't be big enough for him since he is 6'5". I think they are a pretty great deal and the color options are nice.
