Buyer's Guide: Fitness Bikes

Focus Urban 8: For guys who want a serious workout without slipping into a Lycra bodysuit, the Urban 8 is equipped with a Gates carbon belt drive (instead of a chain), an internal hub (no more grease!), and comfortable conveniences (such as flat handlebars for a more vertical and casual riding position). $1,490;

Independent Fabrication Steel Planet Cross: Cyclocross bikes, like this model, feature wider forks to accommodate knobby tires capable of plowing through deep mud. From $2,250;

Cannondale Quick Carbon 1: The Quick provides road-bike functionality for those who aren't ready for drop handlebars. Plus, its wide tires allow riders to easily leave pavement to explore grass, dirt, or rock trails. $2,549;
