2011 Focus Urban 27 City Bike. If you're more about the dash than the flash, you'll appreciate the 2011 Focus Urban 27 City Bike. Cloaked in stealth grey from dropout to dropout, this lightweight aluminum rig with flat bars, 27-gears and hydraulic disc brakes may look like a mountain bike from a distance, but its cueball-smooth, treadless Schwalbe Kojak tires give away its true nature -- The Urban 27 is a pavement pounder, not a trail machine. For crossing campus or crossing town, the Focus Urban 27 City Bike is purpose-built for doing it fast, doing it efficiently and doing it with style so understated it's over-the-top cool. And, if you do get the yen to explore off-road, just trade out the Kojaks for some knobbies and you and your Urban 27 are good to go (after all, the very first mountain bikes had rigid forks, too).
