So, you may not see yourself ever being able to afford an Aston Martin, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get a ride with that iconic brand on your down tube. Many well-known companies have delved into this market for a myriad of reasons.
Some are decent offerings while others just run with the name. But you’re sure to be surprised to learn which ones have added two-wheel options to their product line.
The number of car manufacturers that have headed down this path is wide and varied. You’ll find a broad spectrum of price points too from Kia to Audi. Some notable examples include:
And as you may expect, there were some winners. Others that get an A for effort. You’ll often see cutting edge design and technology—and a price tag to match. Many of today’s lineups also include electric models too.
The line of Renault bicycles includes high-end models with full suspension that can rival that of a Formula 1 car.
The company put a lot of time and effort into research. It’s evident in the wide range of designs with some downright outrageous in form like its Chamoi and Frenzy models. Sometimes you just have to shake your head.
Some manufacturers succeeded with their design and its performance such as you’ll see with Honda bicycles. These are some fast steeds. As far as looks go, well, did we say that it goes fast? The DH line had us scratching our head too.
Hummer bikes include mountain bikes with its proprietary Montague Military Technology. They even produce a folding bike. While we’re sure they’re tough, it’s really hard to get past the brand name blazoned across the top tube. We get it if you drive one, but the bike too?
Peugeot offers a full line of bicycles from electric to mountain to road models. It began its foray into the two-wheel venue in 1886. Unlike the others we considered, the Peugeot bike is a slick-looking ride with the technology to back it up in style.
Unlike the others, the company has taken bike production seriously both in the design and technology. Their offerings are tasteful yet powerful.
An Alfa Romeo bike steps into the ring with a lot riding on it, especially if you manufacture sports car. The 4C IFD is a solid offering with a carbon frame and a classic look that certainly will turn heads. It’s safe to say that they have the design part down flat.
The marriage of bicycles and automobiles isn’t unexpected, given the similar technologies of each of these forms of transportation. While some manufacturers have produced fine examples, others smack of being just for show. But if you want to ride a Porsche, who can blame you?
Over the last few years, I’ve taken my love of the outdoors, hiking, skiing, trekking and exploring to the next level by starting this site. I started a bike shop in Denver, CO, and have seen amazing growth over the last few years. Getting paid to do what I love has been a dream come true for me. That’s also what led me to start BikesReviewed.com. In my shop, I spend a large amount of time helping people find the perfect bike for them and the style of biking they’re going to be doing. It only made sense that I expanded my reach and got online, making it possible for me to help people all over the world. If biking and staying fit is your priority, too, you’ve come to the right place.
