Tired of falling off your dinky little road bike every time you hit a Philly street crater? Well look no further, because UTB is your new hook up for burly, tough, thick-wheeled bicycles. Not only will any bike off this list handle pot holes like a champ, but you'll also have that cool, outdoorsy man aesthetic that you'll need if you want to roll up to United by Blue any time soon.
1. The Classic
Ok, let's admit it. You are a born city slicker. However, you know you have the spirit of a lumberjack. Although you've never seen anything close to the rugged, rocky landscape of Utah, you can still take this bad boy to the outdoors. That hill on the Schuylkill River Trail by the Art Museum doesn't know what's coming!
2. The Sport
Look at that spring! You won't even feel a thing riding this one around the city. Will you take it on an actual trail? No, but UBB is close enough.
3. This One's Muddy
Mud and bikes and girls and craft coffee. This bike is ready to get down and dirty with those potholes. Sure, it was meant for insanely bumpy terrain, but the streets of Philly are basically the same thing.
4. The Big Wheel
Say "screw it" and steamroll right over these bumpy streets. All you really need is a big ol' wheel to show off anyway.
5. The Purist
What mountain bike could be more perfect to take on the Philly terrain than one which exists only in virtual space? In concept, this bike is the best of the best: it can fly, it has surround sound, and it was featured on r/ManlyMenWhoBike.
