Globe Bicycle Review

Globe bikes are a brand made by Specialized Bicycle Components of California. Specialized makes just about every type of bike, but the Globe range is is aimed at eco-minded urban cyclists and city commuters who prefer pedal power for the rush hour. The Globe range has three styles: Work, Daily and Roll.

Work Warrior

The Globe Work model is a road warrior that can stand up to heavy use in any weather. Although it is tough, it is also lightweight. Cyclists can choose from Work 1, 2 or 3 styles. Each model in the range comes with a step-through option for women.

The Daily

The Daily is for getting around town to go shopping or meet friends for coffee. It's lightweight and modern with a retro touch and is deceptively speedy. Like the Work bike, the Daily comes in three styles with options for men and women.

Go With The Roll

The Roll model is for the urban rider who wants to zip around the streets. While the Work and Daily bikes are classic upright bikes, the Roll's handlebars are lower than the seat to give riders a racing posture. The Roll also has a steel frame that offers a smooth ride. Cyclists can choose from the Roll 1, 7 or 8. The Roll range has no step-through option.
