3. Giant Via 1

Price: $600
Complex Says: Upright positioning, swept-back handlebars, and a distinctive top-tube frame lend Via a balanced, comfortable ride and a modern, unique look. The double-butted chromoly frame tubing makes for a lively ride. A few special touches--including the subtle U-lock holder and bolted wheels (no quick release)--make it the perfect companion for city streets or quiet country roads.
