A good custom bike is always better than even the best off-the-rack bike. It's a lot more comfortable and saves you from back and neck pains that result from riding bikes that don't fit right. If you can't afford one, the Universal Bike might be the best solution out there and it goes beyond your typical custom bike.
Instead of being the right fit just for you, the Universal Bike fits just about anybody. It comes with an app that tells you to input your body measurements and the style of bike you want and then calculates the correct setting for you. Whether you want it to be a fixie bike, a commuter bike, or a beach cruiser, it's all there for you.
