You don't have to be a design buff to appreciate the beauty of the 7-speed Daily bike from Globe, a division of Specialized -- and you don't have to be a die-hard athlete to hop on and cut your carbon footprint by using it for commuting, exercising, or errands around town.

The aluminum frame is tough enough to withstand hard riding but light enough that it won't weigh you down, and the Infinity 700c tires have a deep tread and "puncture protection" to help you through puddles, gravel, and bumps.

Even the seat is designed for comfort: It has a "center groove for those sensitive areas" and side bumpers for added balance. (Globe Daily bicycle, $500-$770)
