City riding involves uneven pavement, twists, and turns in the road. There are bike paths, sidewalks, stoplights, and unexpected detours. The cyclist, unlike the driver, is a participant his environment. If he sees something that interests him — a new store, a beautiful view, an old friend — he can stop for that, too. These are the things that make cycling so much fun!
A good city bicycle has upright geometry to maximize control and comfort, and to keep weight off the rider’s wrists. It also has relatively wide tires. Hard skinny tires recoil backwards when they hit even a small bump. This slows the rider down. Bigger tires are much faster at city-riding speeds, as they can deform and conserve forward momentum.
