Cycling is a popular pastime for many but it is the sole mode of transport for some people. If you live in a city or suburb where getting around by car or bus can be a pain due to traffic, then hybrid bikes, like the Scott Sub 40, could be a good alternative to petrol powered travel. The Scott Sub 40 will be a trusty companion for the daily commute and with its alloy frame and 24 gears using Shimano components, you will not be overwhelmed if your journey involves lots of uphill struggles or downhill sprints. This bike is a high quality product but it is also priced to appeal to a wide audience.

The Scott Sub 40 is designed to be fast from a standing start with plenty of acceleration which is why it has a rigid front fork and a light, nimble alloy frame with intelligent geometry to let you put as much power down as possible. It handles deftly and it can be comfortable and sedate if you so choose, which means it is not overly focused on sport performance for average use. From a practical standpoint it aims to please with the option to add mudguards and a bag rack so that you can keep your books, your briefcase or your shopping onboard.

The simplicity of the black frame with the white of the handlebars, saddle and rims will definitely be a selling point for some people. As an alternative you can buy the inverse option in terms of colour scheme with white features on the frame and black on the surrounding components. It is a classic design and it looks like a suitably stylish contender for your custom.
