Bicycles are a little like wrist watches in that you can get a simple one that does the job – or you can get a staggeringly expensive model that performs the same fundamental functions but does so with a little more titanium, carbon and precision.
Beater Bikes would fall into that first category, you can pick one up for $299.99 USD, they’re simple, solid and they get the job done. Each bike is sold with matte military green paint and each one is made from solid steel, has front and rear racks, alloy rims and the option to add a 3-speed hub for an additional $100 USD.
