The three types of bicycles currently popular can be generally grouped into track, road and hybrid bicycles.
Track bicycles are fixed gear types used in sports such as short distance races. Road bicycles have gears and are used in competitions. Hybrid bicycles are all-purpose bicycles designed to go both on-road and off-road. These types have seen a recent rise in popularity among commuters to work and school. The “Tweed Run” which is an event combining fashion and bicycles from London has been becoming more and more popular every year in Japan so vintage models have also been put in the spotlight.
Under the influence of the popularity and diversification of these bicycles, there has been a rapid increase in the number of people selecting bicycles which match their lifestyle and pulling off fashionable ways to ride them.
