Product Details

2014 Globe Daily 2

Globe's Daily 2 is a do-everything commuter bike that provides freedom and fun with classic style. This beauty features a nimble aluminum frame, swept-back bars for an upright riding position, and a Globe seat to keep you comfortable mile after mile. It also has 700c aluminum wheels that spin free and easy, and flat-resistant Specialized tires. The Shimano 8-speed drivetrain flattens the hills and side-pull brakes offer great control. You also get full-length fenders, a front basket, a kickstand, and even a bell—so you're ready for whatever the day brings.

    Solid daily rider

    About Me

    Comments:

    I decided to get back on a bike after nearly 25 years to get some exercise and run errands around my neighborhood. After trying probably twenty bikes at local shops, I settled on the Daily 2 and am pleased with it. Being a noob, I cannot competently compare it to other bikes based on anything other than my test rides. But for what it's worth, the primary reasons I settled on it were 1) comfort and 2) the fact that it was complete when I rode it out the door so I didn't need to blow money on accessories. I prefer a more upright riding position so the swept back handlebars are perfect, and better positioned than on other makes I tried. Even with my higher center of gravity, the bike is stable and does not slide out or bounce around underneath me. I had a similar experience as commenter ggallin in that my fenders were loose at first, and went out of alignment when I knocked into them. But I think it was an assembly issue. After I (over?)tightened the bolts a bit they now stay where they belong. And they do a perfect job of keeping road gunk off me, even through a rainy Portland winter. Mine came with a rear rack instead of a front basket, so I mounted two 5-gallon buckets to carry groceries, etc. The way the frame is built they fit great, don't interfere with my feet when pedaling, and the bike is still balanced when loaded. So it hauls a fairly large / heavy load without problem. I've had a few compliments on it too. It's a subtly cool-looking bike, but doesn't scream "steal me".
